An Atlas of the Universe

Created by astrophysicist Richard Powell, An Atlas of the Universe is a Web site that allows visitors to see nine main maps of the universe, ranging from 12.5 light years to 15 billion light years from the sun. Each map then contains several other corresponding maps as well as descriptions of what is being shown. The maps give perspective to the vastness that lies beyond earth and explains, clearly and simply, things such as "where is the center of the universe" and "where did the big bang occur." Anyone interested in astronomy will enjoy the well organized and informative content.
