To steal a phrase from Douglas Adams, “Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space.”

Reddit, you’ll find, is a lot like space. No matter how much you explore, there’s more to be seen. The vast cosmos of subreddits ensure that there are dark corners of awesome that many Reddit users never see.

So we visualized it. The top 500 subreddits by subscriber count are shown in this Daily Dot infographic.
