Reminder on how small we are – a journey trough the Cosmos

Check out a journey trough the Cosmos – reminder on how small we are.

What would it look like to travel across the known universe? To help humanity visualize this, the American Museum of Natural History,  has produced a modern movie featuring many visual highlights of such a trip.

The video starts in Earth’s Himalayan Mountains and then dramatically zooms out,showing the orbits of Earth satellites, the Sun, the Solar System… the Milky Way Galaxy, galaxies nearby, distant galaxies … As the distant surface of the microwave background is finally reached,  radiation is depicted that was emitted billions of light years away and less than one million years after the Big Bang.

Wow!
