3-D Map Of Universe Shows Positions Of Known Galaxies In Unprecedented Detail (Still)

      Still trying to find your place in the world? How about the universe?

An international team of astronomers and astrophysicists have created a video spotlighting their new 3-D map of the known universe. The map was created from a collection of galaxy redshifts -- observations of light emitted from galaxies as they move away from the earth.

"In terms of moving -- pardon the pun -- pictures, this is by far the best I have seen among numerous motion pictures showing where we are at, literally and figuratively, in the biggest picture of all," Ian Steer, co-leader of NASA/IPAC's Extragalactic Database project, commented on the video on Vimeo.

As seen in the video, the map shows the location of all the visible galaxies in our universe as far away as 340 million light-years. . . .


  1. Wow this is so informative. Very interesting.

  2. There is life other than Earth I truly believe we are not alone.
