It's the work of Will Parr, Dr. Mark Swinbank and Dr. Peder Norberg of Durham University, who assembled it using data from both the Galaxy and Mass Assembly catalogue and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.

"This simulated flythrough shows the real positions and images of the galaxies that have been mapped so far," they write. "Distances are to scale, but the galaxy images have been enlarged for your viewing pleasure."
