I Think I Can See My House From Here

The universe is big. No shit. So to take a picture of it, you need a camera that can take big pictures. The ESO (European Southern Observatory) is in the business of making huge ground-based, picture-taking telescopes. Recently they took the image seen above, however that is a much much smaller version. The original image, which took over 40 hours to capture, contains more than 27 million pixels. It is officially the deepest(into space) photo ever taken from Earth. You can download the big one here. It would make nice wallpaper, like, for a real wall not your computer.
