The extent of the whole known cosmos is shown on a new map of the universe for the first time, with pinpoint precision and sweeping beauty.

The map, which was developed by astronomers at Johns Hopkins University, gives the general public access to data that was previously exclusively available to experts.

The interactive map is accessible online and may be downloaded for free. It shows the precise location and true colors of 200,000 galaxies.

According to map-maker Brice Ménard, a professor at Johns Hopkins, "Growing up, I was tremendously inspired by astronomical photos, stars, nebulae, and galaxies, and now it's our turn to produce a new form of picture to inspire others."
