I see no mention of the Hayden Planetarium (American Museum of Natural History) who have been working to create the most complete and accurate 3-D atlas of the Universe for years now. Seems a bit strange as that appears to be the most complete model created yet


You can read more about The Digital Universe project here and also download the 3d atlas

unfortunately partview the software to render the model is not the easiest to use and usually requires referring to the pdf manual
