Big Things in a Small Space

While I was looking around for more info on the Kepler survey I came across this…

I’m such a sucker for anything that involves cutting stuff out and glueing 🙂 and it’s available as a pdf from here. I’ve stuck the two wheels together so it’s reversible.

It does really drive home what a small area the Kepler survey is looking out, and they’re only looking as far away as 3000lys. If, in this small area, over a 1000 possible planet candidates have been found so far imagine how many there must be in the entire sky.
