This image, captured with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, is the largest and sharpest image ever taken of the Andromeda galaxy — otherwise known as M31.

This is a cropped version of the full image and has 1.5 billion pixels. You would need more than 600 HD television screens to display the whole image.

It is the biggest Hubble image ever released and shows over 100 million stars and thousands of star clusters embedded in a section of the galaxy’s pancake-shaped disc stretching across over 40 000 light-years.

Fascinating. I cant help but to see patterns formed by the clusters.

this makes me feel very small

yeah I'm sure you'll find a Fibonacci sequence in there somewhere and relate it to weed and music theory somehow

OT: That image was released a while ago now. Always fun to look at, though.

Anyone know when this was taken?

I never understood the fascination with the Fibonacci sequence.

Did you know there are infinite Fibonacci sequences? Just start it with 2 numbers different than 0 and 1.

For example, 4 - 7 - 11 - 18 - 29 - 47 - etc is another "fibonacci sequence". But where is the "fascination" with this sequence?

This is fiboracism.

imagine my surprise when i found out there was an entire journal dedicated to the fibonnaci sequence. fiboracism at its finest.

The dude who discovered it isn't even called Fibonacci

YOUR SEQUENCE IS BASED ON LIES!

I wish I could relate the geometry of the universe to music theory, that would make my life. Don't be jealous nothing fascinates you and you have to resort to making fun of people on the internet.

The fascination isnt of the fibonacci sequence, it is of the golden ratio, usually expressed with numbers of the fibonacci sequence. If you are like me and you like to count things, you will discover these numbers exist everywhere. I would also bet a large sum of money if i had a large sum of money that gravity sets the stars in place in respect to one another on an imaginary grid made purely from the golden ratio if you mapped them out.

if that makes you feel small, imagine you're looking at a cumstain, think how big that dick must have been

good thread

The golden ratio IS fibonacci, at least when it shows up in the physical world (most of the time, unless I'm missing some cases).

Space fascinates me and I guarantee I know a shitload more about it than you

yet again peppers can't comprehend people having a different viewpoint.

I'd say fascination is a human trait that basically everyone has. Sometimes what fascinates one person doesn't seem worthy of the word to another.

Outstanding! Thanks for posting.
