The Known Universe

Hans Zimmer – Time (We Plants Are Happy Plants Remix) [HD]

I love science! Okay, sure I can’t do basic math without a calculator and I always forget what DNA stands for, but I still love science with the enthusiasm of a simpleton and a shiny object! So in that spirit, check out this wonderful video I found over at Geeks are Sexy! Here’s the important details for Known Universe:

From the American Museum of Natural History:

The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world’s most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History. The new film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010.

The exhibition may be over, but the museum isn’t! Hit the link above for their site and, y’know, learn stuff. So, here it is… The Known Universe…

  1. Wow! I haven’t been made to feel that small and insignificant since at least college. Except this time I felt really calm about it.
