One of my friends (an astrophysicist if I remember right) showed me this link just now, and I think it’s worthy to share, since finals are coming up and I need a little bit of just plain awesome. Don’t you?

LINKY for the news article as well as the interactive interface.

Basically, this amateur photographer traversed from the US to South Africa, taking over 40k photographs and putting it together to make a star map of awesome.

Now all I need to know is how the hell am I going to get a larger version of that image for my desktop wallpaper, because SCIENCE IS AWESOME.
