Check Out the First Image of the Andromeda Galaxy From 1887

Scientists have been snapping galactic shots for longer than you’d think????Isaac Roberts took the first photo of the Andromeda galaxy back in 1887????It looks so white because it was taken in unfiltered light????We’ve clearly come a long way in terms of quality, but it’s a pretty wild feat????The Andromeda galaxy is the Milky Way’s closest neighbor ????It’s thought to have between 2.5 to 5 times more stars than our galaxy????with a diameter about twice as large????One thing’s for sure... if we could do this in the 1800s, there’s no telling what we can achieve ??
