German scientists have put a giant space photo online, a 46 billion pixel photo, one of a combined size of 194 gigabytes. No fret, you do not have to download it if you want to look at it. They have put up a website through which you can zoom in, change the colors, etc.
The image contains data gathered in astronomical observations over a period of five years.
Astronomers have created the largest astronomy photo ever created – a monstrous, eye-melting image of our own Milky Way, with 46 billion pixels.
Edit: To load the photo, you do need at least one gigabyte (1024MB) of free memory for your browser.
