Mastodon's 2 Year Anniversary: A retrospective
The Milky Way Wall Map
"This computer-generated image of the Milky Way shows the entire galaxy in one perspective of a 3-D model compiled specially for National Geographic. The model incorporates the positions of hundreds of thousands of stars and nebulae within the galaxy, shows Earth's location, and includes additional photographs, descriptions and locations of fascinating phenomena throughout the Milky Way."
The Universe Wall Map:
"As far as we can see with our ever-improving telescopes, there are at least a hundred billion galaxies arrayed throughout the universe. Each, like the Milky Way, is an island galaxy containing billions of stars. This map uses graphic leaps of scales to show how our solar system fits within the vastness of the universe. The map also includes a universe timeline and a description of its evolution."
