They had a segment on "How the Universe works" explaining the structure of the known universe and how the astronomers at the Apache Point Observatory created the map. Then they showed a computer simulation of the structure and observed that it resembles a sponge. To me it also resembled a diagram of how all the synapses of a human brain are interconnected. Now I wonder if anyone else has made the same comparison.

Guess I am interested Bob, but here is a catch.

Using Photobucket for upload in order to either display or make a link to relevant pictures here, I may sign in to Photobucket using a username or password for that purpose.

So, because Photobucket thinks that I may be using either Facebook, Yahoo! or maybe even Twitter, apparently for now the system has forgotten my account there and I am currently unable to access my uploaded pictures.

Already being mentioned, but when first logged in there, it may be difficult logging out again.

I added /logout to the web-address for doing this.

So the picture of the Universe currently being opened in Paint here, showing a scale of 31.25 Mpc/h for now lies on my disc and whether or not I already uploaded this picture I am right now unable to tell.

Definitely it is not supposed to be a 3D map either.

Perhaps some advice needed here.

Definitely, janneseti.

Quite interesting pictures here.

Right now comparing the first picture visible here with the file opened in my graphics editor. Here the similarity should be greatest, because they are based on the same.

I suppose the visible or illuminated parts being visible here could be called filaments, while the dark portions should be regarded as being voids.

Most likely, our knowledge about galaxies and galaxy clusters are from the survey based on the 48-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope at Mt. Palomar.

When carrying out more detailed surveys, you will need to rely on the Sloan Digital Sky survey for the main part of the sky, or the Hubble Space Telescope for distant objects which are showing only a very small area of the sky.

Found a good one for this right now.

http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a010000/a010100/a010136/

The video controls for playback is below the "picture".

Still working on this.

I do not have the mpeg-4 or Quicktime format ready for playback right now, so it becomes a download instead for these two files. But at least one of the selected file types lets me play back the movie in a following tab.

Edit: It downloaded the journey_3_720p.m2v to disc, but apparently chose to playback the file Journey3_HD_LARGE_QT_Video_1.mp4 in the browser.

Please choose the correct format for playback before downloading.

Also watch the video in the page first, which actually is the picture.
