Thanks, I love this kind of stuff. NASA Goddard Photo and Video is my favorite stream on flickr too.

I wonder what stitching software they used?  Are overlapping areas ok? :D

Dang, that was my idea and I've been working on it for five years... now someone else did it. I'll have to start over with something new. :D

125 million pixel images are about 11200 x 11200 each. Can I have a WOW just for that? Did I read that right?

Uh yes, I did: The workhorse behind the data set, a camera comprising 125 million pixels that long held the record for highest-resolution camera in the world, has been retired. Another Wow...

I wonder what they will do next?
