A Grand Tour of the Universe

Here is an amazing video, made possible by the Digital Universe Atlas which is the most complete 4-D accurate map of our entire known universe. In this video, Every satellite, moon, planet, star and galaxy is represented to scale and its correct, measured location according to the best scientific research to-date.

The digital map is maintained by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History.

The following jaw dropping video takes us on a grand tour of our known universe flaying away from the Himalayas through our atmosphere to the most distant outer rim of the universe.

It will make you stop for a moment in total awe, completely overwhelmed by the sheer mind boggling size of the universe that we know and blown away by what is left to be discover by the human race that resides on a small insignificant rock, that is but one tiny speck of dust in an endless universe. Totally, a humbling experience.
