The most astounding fact about the universe, according to Neil DeGrasse Tyson

In this video, Neil DeGrasse Tyson answers the question, “What’s the most astounding fact you can share with us about the universe?”

The video contains breathtaking images of space with musical accompaniment by the Cinematic Orchestra. It was edited and posted by Max Schlickenmeyer in early 2012, and I just came across it recently. Take three minutes out of your day today to watch and reflect on this video. Definitely watch in full-screen view.

“We are part of this universe; we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the universe is in us.”- Neil DeGrasse Tyson
