3D Star map

Just before I started out on my holiday, one of my friends sent me a link to an artist who makes geometric sculptures. These are inspired by maths and science and are quite striking. I particularly liked the 3D star map sculpture that shows all the stars within 5 parsecs (16.3 lightyears) of the Sun. It was etched within a glass cube using lasers. Neat.
