I love that sequence of images. My head explodes a little when I think about the how there are voids in space a trillion times larger than Antares. One commenter on youtube summed it up perfectly with this elegant quote
MrCanuck: "My BALLS should be on the end of this video."
This one is a great humbilizer as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p86BPM1GV8M
How could you do this to me?
Until today, I thought that I was playing a pretty decent part in this Universe. Are you implying that I am just a speck? (no offense to the speck)
Everyone under 30 should watch the entire series, utterly fascinating.
Thanks for the link,
From old Billy Shakespear:
All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts.
The guy had a way with words.
Cosmos is good but pretty dated. The new series on either the History channel or Discovery is "The Universe" That is a really cool show. It has things that have been found out as recently as when they edited the program. Like shots from outer space on the space station of the heat signature left by the murmors of the big bang. Unbelievable series.
Of course there will be some that will say thats it...it's unbelievable.
