Milky Way Transit Authority

(via) Behold Samuel Arbesman's map of the Milky Way in the style of a transit map.

He explains the project thusly:
I was re-reading Carl Sagan's novel Contact recently, essentially a series of arguments about SETI wrapped into a story, and he alludes to some sort of cosmic Grand Central Station. That, coupled with my longtime interest in transit maps, got me thinking about all of this.

You are the third person in two days to link to it. I must be in the right circles...

It is very cool, though. I'd love to use this motif for a number of projects beyond my graphic ability...
I'm a sucker for this kind of thing, too. Have you seen Jon Coulthart's transit map of the Sephiroth?
This is brilliant and I have passed it along to Moshe Feder's Third Level discussion group.
