This is What Entire Observable Universe Looks Like in a Single Image

Isn't it lovely? This is a picture of the observable Universe on a logarithmic scale, with the Solar System in the middle.

The inner and outer planets, the Kuiper belt, the Oort cloud, the Alpha Centauri star, the Perseus Arm, the Milky Way galaxy, the Andromeda galaxy, and other nearby galaxies, the cosmic web, cosmic microwave radiation, and at the very edges, invisible plasma from the Big Bang. See below for versions that aren't cut off and that you can zoom in on.

Pablo Carlos Budassi, a musician and artist, made the picture. It was based on logarithmic maps of the Universe made by researchers at Princeton University and images made by NASA based on what their telescopes and roving spacecraft saw.
