2024 marks the 100th anniversary of the discovery that our Milky Way was only one galaxy among many, and that the universe was far larger than previously believed. In celebration, make your own diorama of the Milky Way and its neighboring galaxies on a scale of 1:5 hundred thousand billion billion, and learn how to measure the distance to places too far away to visit in person. Recommended for ages 8+.
