A fly-though of the GAMA galaxy survey (with music)

The Galaxy and Mass Assembly catalogue is a detailed map of the Universe showing where galaxies are in 3D. This simulated flythrough shows the real positions and images of the galaxies that have been mapped so far. Distances are to scale, but the galaxy images have been enlarged for your viewing pleasure.

This work was supported by the Ogden Trust, STFC and the Royal Society.


ICRAR/GAMA/Will Parr, Mark Swinbank and Dr. Peder Norberg (Durham University) using data from the SDSS and the GAMA surveys.

Music by Holly Broadbent
