The Known Universe in One Image

By Gareth Coxon, January 17, 2016

What an undertaking this is, artist Pablo Carlos Budassi has combined satellite images and NASA Rover images to create one over all photograph of the know universe. This just illustrates the scale of the universe that we know of, which could just be the tip of the iceberg.

A fascinating project which really does show how (as far as this image goes) insignificant we are. Hats off to Pablo.

“Budassi was aided by similar (though less visually stunning) logarithmic maps produced by astronomers at Princeton back in 2005. In this map, our sun and solar system are seen in the middle, followed by the Milky Way Galaxy, another ring of nearby galaxies like Andromeda, all the way out to cosmic radiation and plasma generated by the bing bang on the furthest outskirts of the image.”
