3D Map of The Universe

Scientists have created the largest 3D map of the universe that covers 380 million light years. The project took over a decade to complete.

It’s called the 2MASS Redshift Survey (2MRS) and is based upon the University of Massachusetts’ Two-Micron All-SkySurvey (2MASS). Between 1997 and 2001, telescopes in Arizona and Chile worked together on an ambitious project to map the night sky.
