This web page is designed to give everyone an idea of what our universe actually looks like. There are nine main maps on this web page, each one approximately ten times the scale of the previous one. The first map shows the nearest stars and then the other maps slowly expand out until we have reached the scale of the entire visible universe. Visits since 1 Aug 2000: An Atlas of The Universe

Top 100 Astronomers You’ve Probably Never Heard Of How many of the faces above do you recognise? For a long time, I’ve wanted to investigate the the “who’s who” of astronomy via the literature but haven’t had the means. I’ve teamed up with Andy Casey who has written a neat ADS-python module to access the ADS publication database. It is still early days at the moment so we’ve mainly been brainstorming but we figured we should start with the basics: most cited astronomers. Top 100 Astronomers You’ve Probably Never Heard Of
The Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology, or KIPAC, was inaugurated in 2003 as an independent laboratory of Stanford University to serve as a bridge between the disciplines of astrophysics, cosmology and particle physics. KIPAC's members work in the Physics and Applied Physics Departments on the Stanford campus and at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. Its mission is to bring the resources of modern computational, experimental, observational and theoretical science to bear on our understanding of the universe at large. A team of researchers working on the BICEP2 experiment has announced the first direct evidence of cosmic inflation, a momentous experimental result that supports and gives new details on the Big Bang Theory of the Universe.

21 mayo.- Japón lanzó hoy su primera misión espacial al planeta Venus para estudiar su clima. La sonda durante dos años estudiará el clima y los fenómenos atmosféricos del planeta. "Akatsuki" ("Aurora"), como se ha bautizado a la sonda Planet-C, es una de las grandes apuestas de la Agencia de Exploración Aeroespacial de Japón (JAXA). El "Akatsuki" despegó con éxito del Centro Espacial de Tanegashima, en el sur de Japón, a las 06.58 hora local (21.58 GMT) a bordo del cohete lanzadera H2-A, que transportaba otros cinco satélites secundarios. Menos de media hora después estaba en órbita, tras separarse de la lanzadera emprendió su largo y solitario viaje de unos siete meses hacia nuestro más cercano vecino. Cielo Sur Cielo Sur
Click to view the live ERGO map! What if you had the chance to redefine the term “active learning?” By being real scientists in creating the world’s largest telescope, students will reach a whole new dimension in learning. This telescope we’re talking about isn’t one you can buy or make, nor will it collect visual images. The ERGO Telescope is a hands-on project in which students and teachers in classes around the world will be pioneers in setting up a cosmic-ray telescope the size of the Earth! The ERGO Telescope project was Inspired by the “TED Wish” made by Jill Tarter at the 2009 TED Conference in Long Beach, CA, “I wish that you would empower Earthlings everywhere to become active participants in the ultimate search for cosmic company.” ERGO – Energetic Ray Global Observatory | Enabling Kids to Build the World's Largest Telescope ERGO – Energetic Ray Global Observatory | Enabling Kids to Build the World's Largest Telescope
