Creating a New 3D Map of Space

…from Wired magazine

“A new project to create a 3D map of space so large that scientists can find a 500 million-light-year-size remnant from the early universe inside it began operation last month.

“The Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey opened its eyes to the universe, taking in data from hundreds of galaxies and quasars in the constellation Aquarius, from its perch on the Apache Point Observatory in New Mexico. Eventually, it will image two million galaxies and quasars.”

  2. Oh this sounds so awesome. I just wish they would hurry up and find something really amazing. I would like to just fly off this rock and start a new adventure else where lol.

    It’s so amazing what some of the brains on this earth can and can not do!
