The Known Universe

0

I came across this video on YouTube, which has been produced by the American Museum of Natural History. They describe the video as:

The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world’s most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History. The new film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010.

The video is very impressive and leaves you in awe of the universe, what we actually know about. It also makes you think about how insignificant we are in comparison. Enjoy.
