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.

Very fascinating video. It's amazing how infinitely small the Earth is in the grand scheme of things. It really makes me wonder what else is out there. I wish there was some way to be there and see what it is.

When you consider that that's just the known Universe it does give you a feeling awe , the size of not just the Universe but our own Galaxy in relation to our own tiny Solar System , And then if you add in the possibility that our Universe is part of a Multiverse then the scale of things just becomes incomprehensible

All that beauty and bliss, vastness and wonder... And we treat our Earth the way we do. The mind boggles.

Nothing is more humbling than the Universe :-)

We have a long way to go when you consider the furthest we have been is the Moon , Its a sad state of affairs .
We have such a high opinion of ourselves as a species but will Mankind survive long enough to even leave our own Solar System ?.
