Video: The known universe

Check out a video simulation of the known universe, as mapped through astronomical observations.

This wonderful video comes from the American Museum of Natural History in New York. It’ll help you experience the awesome scale of the known universe, as mapped through astronomical observations. You start at the Himalayas, move through Earth’s atmosphere and the black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Need perspective? This video is for you.
