Dropping Science: The Entire Known Universe in One Video

I love these kind of films and this one is truly breathtaking. It’s a combination of The American Museum of Natural History’s “Known Universe” video and the music of Hans Zimmer. The video takes us from the Himalayas to the very edge of the known universe and includes every single object ever observed at the scale and in the location that it should be. It does this by drawing on the museum’s Digital Universe Atlas, which is the most complex four dimensional map of the cosmos in the world.

Wonderful.
