Astrophysicist Richard Powell has created this map of the universe, featuring everything from our local group of stars to the entire visible cosmos.

Writers who send their characters FTL will now have a map.

Definitely added this to the bookmark folder I have titled “Writer’s Tools.”

That should make everyone feel REALLY small. It does that to me. Kind of like the bacteria living on the back of a flea, who is living on the small dog, who is riding a bigger dog, who is riding in the back of a truck, going down some lonesome road in the midwest. At night.
