Ten Light Years to the Inch
Jamais Cascio, 5 Apr 05

I admit it -- I'm a sucker for art that combines science and beauty, and the Star Map Crystal definitely covers both. Designed by Bathsheba Grossman, it's a 3" glass cube laser-etched with a 3D map of all the stars within 5 parsecs (~16 light years) of the sun, with labels for each. A shrunken-down image here wouldn't do it justice, so I encourage you to follow the link to see the object for yourself. We've mentioned art based on biology before, so it's good to see some of the other natural sciences in play, too.
