This Day in the Universe
Mark a special birthday, anniversary, or Mars mission launch date in a cosmically novel way with this sophisticated portrait of the solar system. The international design team of Martin Vézina and Govy use down-to-earth data to create each custom diagram of the major planets and dwarf planets from your day of choice. They use the latest NASA information to precisely compute the positions and orbital paths of each celestial body. Mission accomplished? Not quite. They test their results against the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's systems to ensure the most accurate representation. All this amazing data is run through a 3D projection to generate a depiction of our galactic backyard unique to the date you requested. The print includes the Julian date (JD), from the calendar used by astronomers for a multi-planet perspective. No two different dates produce the same design, making this an elegantly personalized tribute to your place in space and time. Made in Oregon.
