Dr Nick Cross from the University of Edinburgh and associates of his at that institution have completed a 10 year sky survey data combination which will allow one single image (and the information embedded within) to display "about one billion starts." This is according to Cross who notes that this "is more than has been in any other image produced by surveys."
