You've never seen the constellations like this before.
NASA scientists have re-envisioned the shapes in the night sky using data from the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, putting a modern twist on the age-old practice.
Constellations - Forms - Stars - Constellations - Form
Unlike the official 88 constellations, however, which are made up of recognizable forms created by the brightest stars, the new constellations map out the highest-energy form of light in the universe: gamma rays.
The space agency has released an interactive website showing the different gamma-ray constellations in the sky, revealing everything from the Albert Einstein to the USS Enterprise.
Constellations - Way - Decade - Fermi - Accomplishments
'Developing these unofficial constellations was a fun way to highlight a decade of Fermi's accomplishments,' said Julie McEnergy, the Fermi project scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
'One way or another, all of the gamma-ray constellations have a tie-in to Fermi science.'
NASA - Characters - Constellation - Result - Experiment
According to NASA, some of the characters in the new constellation came about as the result of a gamma-ray experiment gone wrong.
The series includes the Little Prince, the TARDIS from 'Doctor Who,' Godzilla and his heat ray, the antimatter-powered U.S.S. Enterprise from 'Star Trek: The Original Series' and the Hulk, along with several landmarks from countries involved in the Fermi project.
