Scientists made ​​a 3D map of the universe

British astronomers have presented the most complete 3D map of the universe in history. Map "2MASS Redshift survey 2MRS (2MASS Redshift Survey 2MRS) includes distance of 380 million light years and that has been built over ten years.

Map of the universe extends much closer to the galactic plane with the previous one. The survey marked the detailed areas previously hidden behind the Milky Way, in order to better understand their impact on its movement in relation to the rest of the universe.

Karen Masters from the University of Portsmouth presented the map at a press conference during the 218th meeting of the American Association astonomskog the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge Massachusetts.

"2MASS Redshift Survey is a beautiful new look of the universe, especially near the galactic plane. Map in 3D will allow astronomers to study the area in more detail, " said Masters.

Scientists at the beginning of May presented the 3D map of the universe of similar size. It was one of the most complex maps in history.

Those who have constructed a map of SDSS III studied the brightest objects in the sky and created an image like the one when looking through the clouds month, writes the British media.
