+ - "Tube Map" Created for the Milky Way->

Submitted by

astroengine writes "Assuming you had an interstellar spaceship, how would you navigate around the galaxy? For starters, you'd probably need a map. But there's billions of stars out there, how complex would that map need to be? Actually, Samuel Arbesman, a research fellow from Harvard, has come up with a fun solution. He created the 'Milky Way Transit Authority (MWTA),' a simple transit system in the style of the iconic London Underground "Tube Map." (Travel Tip: Don't spend too much time loitering around the station at Carina, there's some demolition work underway.)"
