Looking at the image above is like looking at the universe. This image is a detailed map with precise 3D coordinates and Red-Shift representation of our nearest 43.000 galaxies, and extends out 380 million light years from our home planet. It took 10 years to build this map, and data can be used to build a realistic 3D model of the universe. And where are we? Well, our galaxy, the Milky Way, runs horizontally thought he center of the image.
