A Flight through the Universe


The authors describe the creation of a tridimensional fly-through animation across the largest map of galaxies to date. This project represented a challenge: creating a scientifically accurate representation of the galaxy distribution that was aesthetically pleasing. The animation shows almost half a million galaxies as the viewer travels through the vast intergalactic regions, giving a glimpse of the sheer size of the universe
