This Is a Map of the Entire Universe, Squeezed Into One Stunning Image

This stunning spherical image manages to cram in the entire universe, including our Solar System at the centre.
The mind-boggling image also packs in the outer planets, Kuiper belt, Oort cloud, Alpha Centauri star and the cosmic web along with the Milky Way galaxy, Andromeda galaxy and other nearby galaxies.
Created by artist Pablo Carlos Budassi, the jaw-dropping image is based on logarithmic maps of the universe compiled by researchers from Princeton University along with images from NASA’s telescopes and space probes.
