Just this week, scientists announced they found more planets further away that are supposedly earth-like. Which is cool and all. But the Visualization of Kepler’s Tally of Planets that the New York Times published is absolutely brilliant.
Yeah, I’m a sucker for good data visualization, but the sheer magnitude of what this is displaying, and the clean and simplistic execution makes my spine tingle. I do wish the star temperature visualization was a touch more lucid, but I can’t really complain. I Love it.
