6df galaxy survey fly through
Paul Bourke, a research professor at the University of Western Australia, provides us a fly-through of the known universe in a beautiful data driven animation. Geeky, I know, but the results is oh so beautiful, for the rest of us.
The 6dF Galaxy Survey has collected more than 120,000 redshifts over the southern sky over a 5 year period from 2001 to 2005. Its goal is to map our southern view of the local universe, and use the peculiar motions of one-tenth of the survey to measure galaxy mass. It covers more than eight times the sky area of the successful 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey.
