What does a trillion look like? It looks like the number of stars in our nearest neighbor, the Andromeda galaxy. Check this out, it's a video compilation released by the Hubble folks that I keep watching again and again. They took a series of very deep exposures of Andromeda, to fabulous results.

I don't really have much to say, other than it's freakishly breathtaking how far astronomy has come in the last hundreds of years.

And if everyone could just spend a moment witnessing the result of science and tech tax dollars, the world could be a little bit better.
