It’s hard to fathom all of the extremities our observable universe entails but luckily for us, Pablo Carlos Budassi, who is an artist and musician, attempted to map it all out in one vivid image.
Budassi completed the task using logarithmic maps and satellite photos from NASA’s rovers to piece together and recreate the magnificent universe. Budassi’s map of the known universe was created specifically for Wikipedia.
With the help of Princeton astronomers, Budassi was able to map out our solar system. Below is his logarithmic scale with the “conception of the observable universe with the Solar System at the center, inner and outer planets, Kuiper belt, Oort cloud, Alpha Centauri, Perseus Arm, Milky Way galaxy, Andromeda galaxy, nearby galaxies, Cosmic Web, Cosmic microwave radiation and Big Bang’s invisible plasma on the edge.”
The Entire Known Universe
The images are incredible. Make sure you give this post a thumbs up and a share with your friends on Facebook before you go.
