The mat shows off a wonderful looking view of Messier 82. Here’s some more information on it…
“Messier 82 (M82) Starburst Galaxy is known to be the closest starburst galaxy to Earth. Its centre is 100 times more luminous than our galaxy centre and this M82 is remarkable for its webs of shredded clouds and flame-like plumes of glowing hydrogen blasting out from its central regions where young stars are being born 10 times faster than they are inside in our Milky Way.
It is located twelve million light-years away in the constellation Ursa Major. The image used to create the game mat, is the sharpest wide-angle view ever obtained of M82, using four filters that capture starlight from visible and infrared wavelengths as well as the light from the glowing hydrogen filaments.”
What we know is that it makes for a wonderful looking mat which is packed with little details for you to get lost in as you’re playing out your games. The mat is limited to fifty copies and comes with the bag that you see in the image above.
Will you be snapping one up?
