The Milky Way Transit Authority

This is amazing:

Samuel Arbesman, a research fellow from Harvard, created this Milky Way Transit Authority map, which lays out the major points in our Milky Way galaxy in the style of a subway map.  

Here's an example of the types of trips you might plan:
So, what about that trip to Cygnus? Be sure to purchase a Day Pass ticket, take the Orion (Red) Line to the Eagle Nebula, then jump on the Sagittarius (Blue) Line to Carina. Be warned, I hear the station at Carina is expecting some demolition work soon, so jump on the Express to Cygnus as fast as you can to avoid delay (and radiation poisoning). 
This must be made into a t-shirt, ASAP.
