Imagine being able to view the entire universe in just one image… impossible right? Wrong. Pablo Carlos Budassi has created this image, that fits the entire universe into one image.

The image centres on our solar system, surrounded by the Kuiper Belt, Oort Cloud, our neighbouring galaxy Andromeda, and is circled by the invisible plasma produced by the Big Bang.

Budassi created the map based on a logarithmic map of the universe created by Princeton University researchers, based on data on 3 million space objects from the Sloan Digital Sky survey.

Budassi says, ‘When I was drawing hexaflexagons for my son’s birthday souvenirs, I started drawing central views of the cosmos and the Solar System. That day the idea of a logarithmic view came, and in the next days I was able to do it with Photoshop using images from NASA and some textures created my own.”
