Soup Du Jour "3D Universe"

BOSTON — Astronomers have created the most complete 3-D map of our local universe, revealing new details about our place in the cosmos.

The map shows all visible structures out to about 380 million light-years, which includes about 45,000 of our neighboring galaxies (the diameter of the Milky Way is about 100,000 light-years across).

This is just mind blowing, we're seeing out to 380 million light years!!! And finding 45,000 galaxies!!!! Go to this link for the whole story.
