This is pretty crazy.

Check out this image compiled by UK scientists consisting of thousands of images taken of space via satellite over the course of 10 years.  STUNNING, to say the least.  It is said to show 1 billion stars (!!!).  Dubbed project “Vista Data Flow System”… well, I’m just gonna have to stop typing because it is quite truly beyond words.  Check it out!
