The story goes that a physicist, Axel Mellinger from Central Michigan University, pieced together a 648MP image of the Milky Way from 3,000 pictures he took from all over the globe. He traveled 26,000 miles to South Africa, Texas, and Michigan over 22 months to take the necessary pictures. After all that, he still had to construct the picture, which included compensating for the two-dimensional images taken from different locations. But enough talk, the full zoomable image is available at his website.
