Since July 2008, the Fermi telescope has explored the sky every day. Int has been making maps, analyzing and measuring the sources of gamma rays, the lights of higher energy in the Universe. Emissions can come from novae, supernovae, black holes and gamma-ray bursts.

The researchers started from the information gathered in the last ten years to make the new map. The names of the constellations go between the geek and the nerd. Plagued with allusions to series, comics, historical characters and elements of pop culture.

Among the eccentric names of the constellations are EinsteinGodzilla, Hulk, the Doctor Who Tardis and even The Little Prince and all them made their appearance in this interesting tribute.
