Illustration for article titled This beautiful galaxy is actually a stunning visualization of Wikipedia

Created by Owen Cornec, each star in the galaxy is a different Wikipedia article and a cluster of stars together would be related Wikipedia articles. It's like taking the idea of exploring space to the expansive rabbit hole that's Wikipedia.
