The Kid Should See This

AMNH: The Known Universe


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.

This film was a part of the 2009/2010 exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe. And it’s awesome. 

Update: Follow this up with Laniakea: Our home supercluster.
