Visualising the Galactic Magnetic Field

Do you know what the magnetic field of our own Milky Way looks like? The Planck satellite does – and we’ve traced the electrons and protons, and dust grains spiralling around our galaxy to show you. Drive an imaginary space ship through a van Gogh style-“Night sky vision” on a 3D TV, try out an interactive Planck map, and build your own universe with the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics!
