that's funny
they say the universe
is infinitely large,
and yet they can make
a photo of entire universe

Isn't this just a photo of the milky way and surrounding space?

I really apologise if you did, I have never had a problem with either site, one is The Sun newspaper and the other the Daily Telegraph. Normally non virus sending sites.

Good point, although I am unsure perhaps someone can clarify.

I am under the impression that the milky way is part of the belt of bright light in the middle of the picture, one would think the brightest light would be the area closest to us?

It's a stunning image. Thanks for sharing the articles, but the title is misleading. That's like not even 1/1,000,000,000,000th of our universe.

How could they make pic of the entire universe from a position like earth is?
How is it possible to see the whole without leaving even our galaxy?
Thats weird! We just have reached the supposed end of the solar system... WTF?

Yeah, misleading, GALAXY not universe. We cannot even look at the whole universe yet.

No drink up, it wasn't your fault. Both articles have been misleadingly titled "universe."

I don't get why the news sites say universe and then contradict the title in the article saying it's just the milky way. That's a big mistake if that is the case. Here's an snippet i thought was interesting:

"Dominating the picture are large parts of our Milky Way Galaxy. The bright horizontal line running across the middle of the image is the galaxy's main disc and where the Sun and Earth are."

So they say large parts of the galaxy is the bright light in the middle and the rest is huge bursts of cold dust that reach thousands of light-years above and below the galactic plane. Then Professor Andrew Jaffe, a Planck team member from Imperial College London, told BBC News.

"What you see is the structure of our galaxy in gas and dust, which tells us an awful lot about what is going on in the neighbourhood of the Sun; and it tells us a lot about the way galaxies form when we compare this to other galaxies,"

So I guess it is just the milky way. The news sites should really change their headlines, universe is incredibly misleading indeed. Nice post though, S&F


Edit: by the time I finished writing this you guys already pointed out what i was writing. way to go ATS
this is why i love this site

I am sorry to say, but this is the universe and not the galaxy. It's just that large because you know we live in it.


As you can better see on this pix:

Its impossible to represent the whole in a 2D picture.
