An Orbit Map of the Solar System
This map shows the orbit paths of over 18,000 asteroids in the solar system, including every single asteroid more than 10km in diameter, and all named asteroids in the Kuiper Belt.  Each asteroid is shown at its exact position on New Years’ Eve 1999, and all objects of known size are shown proportional to its actual size (using a log scale).

The map is made from open NASA data, and I've open-sourced all the code here in a tutorial that explains how to recreate the design.

You can buy a poster of the map here if you'd like.
