Space travel is a really interesting topic and still is today. Recently a group of researchers puts together the most realistic roadmap representation of our universe! It’s beautiful too.

Space travel is super interesting no matter who you are. Our universe is huge and it is hard to even imagine the true size of it. The scientists that came up with this map were from the University of Hawaii and they were led by the astronomer Brent Tully. The map depicts the supercluster of galaxies called Laniakea. This supercluster of galaxies contains literally hundreds of thousands of galaxies – one being our own. We live in the Milky Way Galaxy which is approximately 100,000 light years in diameter. So, Lanieka is huge.
