The Known Universe
A Flight Through the Universe, by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey is much more spectacular with real data and which is more recent. There are close to 400000 galaxies, with images of the actual galaxies in these positions. Here it is:
And here's animation which shows how a few gamma quanta traveled right from the beginning of the universe and got detected by Fermi telescope.
And finally this epic picture taken by Vista telescope shows .... 84 million stars. It's our home Galaxy, Milky Way.
The actual image is 9 x 7 meteres (108,500 x 81,500 pixel image) in psb format. If you have no life here it is:
And I want a separate post for this amazing video
The biggest objects in the Universe. VY Canis Majoris is the winner. Look at the size of that thing ....
It's the biggest star ever.
We're nothing in this universe nothing but pieces of dust ....
Here's another 3D Visualization of Visible Universe created by Sloan Digital Sky Survey. It ends up with spectacular CMBR
And this visualization of the Universe is a simulation created from BAO (Baryon Acoustic Oscillations) data. It looks like a web. Universe where everything is connected with invisible bonds. Ordinary matter, dark matter lol it doesn't matter
And another video:
Here's a nice project from Google called 100000 Stars. So if you have Google Chrome click that link and explore Milky Way. You can zoom in to learn the names of some of the closest stars; click on the names to find out more information about them.
Scale of Earth, Sun, Rigel and VY Canis Majoris.
Man is our planet tiny
