- A conceptual illustration of the visible Universe. At the centre is the Solar System. As we move farther away, we encounter first stars, then galaxies. The farther into space we look, the deeper back in time we see, because of the finite speed of light. The furthest we can see is the point at which the universe became transparent - when the density of matter permitted photons to travel through the

- Dark matter, conceptual illustration. The image represents a region of space a few hundred megaparsecs across. Dark matter is a form of matter that cannot be detected by telescopes as it emits no radiation. It is thought that cold dark matter first formed after the Big Bang. This matter then collapsed under its own weight to form vast halos (bright yellow) which sucked in normal matter to form vis

- Illustration of the Milky Way galaxy as it might appear edge on. The Milky Way is a barred spiral galaxy roughly 100000 light-years in diameter. It is flat, shaped like two fried eggs back-to-back. At the centre is the nucleus, a vast flattened ball of old, red stars orbiting a supermassive black hole. This view imagines our galaxy seen from far from its nucleus, within the galactic plane.
