A variant of the tube map has been created that shows every constellation in the night sky as a train station on a map of truly galactic proportions.

Future faster-than-light travellers will be able to dart about the night skies, travelling where no man has been before, using a 21st-century tube map of their journey.

The design process began with an image of the galaxy’s constellations, and from that point, nine lines were created to logically connect them to each other.

In total nine interstellar tube lines have been created for the Metro Galactic railway network.

When two lines crossover to create a station, it’s a Stellar Station. When two lines run parallel to connect lines, it’s an Intergalactic Station.

A kickstarter fund has been set up to turn the tube map of the night sky into posters, and you can see more details here.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
