Data Centric Universe: then and now

 

 

For Popular Science I have created a visualization that has been published in both the magazine, and as an interactive version for both the iPad and the web. The visualization shows the known universe of 1950 and todays known universe (2011). Since 1950 modern telescopes have been used, and 93% of the known universe has been discovered after 1950.

The visualization was built in Processing, and then turned into a zoomable image that uses OpenLayers.
