Submission + - A Map Of The Universe, 10 Years In The Making

gabbo529 writes: "Astronomers at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) have created a map of the universe, called the 2MASS Redshift Survey. The astronomers put in 10 laborious years in creating the map and it is what they call the most complete 3-D map of the local universe (out to a distance of 380 million light-years) ever created. 2MASS Redshift Survey extends closer to the Galactic plane unlike any other map of the universe before it, the region is generally obscured by dust."
