The Known Universe


(YouTube Link)

Take a journey billions of light years away and back home again.  The American Museum of Natural History has this video called The Known Universe that starts near snowy Mt. Everest and, like Powers of Ten, pulls out and away from Earth to the rest of what we know is out there.


The structure of The Known Universe is based on precise, scientifically-accurate observations and research. The Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History maintains the Digital Universe Atlas, the world’s most complete four-dimensional map of the universe.


Directed by Carter Emmart, this clip begs for full screen and HD.  via kottke.

But the colors are very washed out even in HQ.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
