Our home Galaxy the Milky Way...
If you want to learn about the size of our Universe and what we show in our products within only minutes, we highly recommend this video. This was the motivation of our founder to create the Universe Sphere series:
More than 200,000,000,000 stars form this tremendous swirl of suns, planets, black holes and gases. With a diameter of 200,000 Lightyears, meaning a journey at the speed of light for two-hundred thousand years from one end to the other, we can only dream of traveling through it.
To even visit our nearest neighbor star Alpha Centauri would take you more than 4 years at the speed of light. The ISS with its 7.6km/s would even take 160,000 years.
So, probably the best way for you to experience the beauty and the size of a Galaxy is to gaze into our spheres for hours, imagining how small we are.
Within this solid glass orb, 200,000 precisely lasered dots map our Galaxy, the Globular Clusters and the Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxy in an astonishing precision. Such a detail can only be found in our glass orbs, the original Milky Way in a Sphere from our Kickstarter Campaign in 2018 that you can only get here.
