The Milky Way

A way cool rendering of the Milky Way:


A laser was used to etch around 80,000 of the stars in the Milky Way, using three-dimensional data from the Japan’s National Astronomical Observatory.

It can be yours for a mere 80,000 Japanese Yen...somewhat less than $800 at today's exchange rates (shipping and taxes not included).
