A 6-minute journey through ‘The Known Universe’

Ever wanted to see visually just how insignificant you (… and everyone for that matter!) really are?

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 video is 6 mins long … but well worth the watch!
