Visualizing The Universe

The Known Universe poster (credit: AMNH)

From Asia to the horizon of what can be seen, here is the universe as it actually is known to exist. The visualization was developed by the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) in New York. 

The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through the Earth's atmosphere, to the black void of space, and out to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Seeing Planets, stars, and quasars are possible by the most complete 4D map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas, created from satellite data and maintained by the Museum. WHB
