Largest ever Hubble galaxy portrait

heic0602a.jpgThe European Homepage For The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope – News Archive: “This new Hubble image reveals the gigantic Pinwheel galaxy, one of the best known examples of “grand design spirals”, and its supergiant star-forming regions in unprecedented detail. The image is the largest and most detailed photo of a spiral galaxy ever released from Hubble.”

Wow! Quite a gorgeous desktop background.

That are new and insane dimensions. The “HD-Image” is 450MB!
The website warns with a “Massive File!” 🙂
