The Universe in a Sphere is a beautiful glass orb featuring an intricate web of 380,000 dots that each represent a galaxy. The resulting spectacle is a breathtaking display piece that will leave you transfixed with both its appearance and the immense truths of the universe it represents.
How it was Made
The Universe in a Sphere was mapped from every galaxy within 125 megaparsecs of ours. The over 675,000 galaxies were lasered into a glass sphere (many were close together and became one dot) represented over 380,000 dots. The inner structure reflects light but is also beautiful without an extra light. The brightness changes with perspective.
