If you have 18 minutes to spare and enjoy all things 'Space' I highly recommend this video

Astronomers have put the known universe in a box on your computer screen – the 120 million light-years of it within our grasp, at least. With a mellifluous French-accented narration, some light piano music and sweeping computer animation, the video could become a stoner classic. It also happens to be the most detailed modern cosmography of all that is visible in the sky – and a great deal of what is not.

This is just a local pocket of our Universe. It makes you feel so insignificant!

For those who cant watch the video here is a couple of links with more information -

Interesting video, but isn't it interesting how we have to put straight lines over everything, like seeing the universe through rigid straight lines. Straight lines are not really a natural phenomena in the universe. it is only us humans who have to put everything into tidy boxes drawn out with straight lines.
