3-D Cosmic Map Helps You Wrap Your Brain Around the Universe's Weirdness - Wired Science | Complex Insight  - Understanding our world | Scoop.it

... figuring out the universe is tough. There’s all these weird things — dark matter, quasars, cosmological expansion — that are genuinely difficult to get a good handle on. So anything that helps come to terms with how the cosmos works is commendable, and for that reason I really like this new 3-D map assembled by scientists working with the National Astronomical Observatory in Japan using data from the Subaru Telescope. 

ComplexInsight's insight:

Great short astronmy article in Wired on the new 3D map from the national Astronomical Observatory in Japan. Article gets extra points for using NASA's brilliant timeline of the universe graphic representation of the evolution of the universe over 13.77 billion years developed for explaining the Wilkinson Microwave Anistropy Probe.
