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.
