Make a map of the universe. The easiest way to make this map is to search a wide range of RA and a narrow range of dec to get a 2-D slice through the full 3-D map. But can you make a map in 3-D?
What does the universe look like? Can you quantify the spacing between walls of galaxies?

Your data is polar (redshift -> r, RA -> θ), while Excel can only graph x-y quantities. How will you overcome this problem?
