Map Of September 2013 Space Probe Locations, Courtesy of Neil deGrasse Tyson
Not to scale, of course. That image is way bigger.
Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Twitter feed is full of such wonderful things — like this map he posted early this morning, which tells you where every single probe we’ve currently got in space is going to be next month, as well as a calendar of upcoming events and launches. What would we do without this guy? Other than wonder where all the probes are, I guess.
Of course, Tyson’s too busy being a badass over here to actually spend time making a map like this — the image is actually the brainchild of illustrator Olaf Frohn at the Planetary Society and was brought to Tyson’s attention by web intern Tanya Harrison.
