Incredible video from the American Museum of Natural History depicting the expanse of the known universe. Every moon, planet, star, galaxy, and quasar seen in the clip is based on the Digital Universe Atlas, the world's most complete four-dimensional map of the universe maintained and updated by astrophysicists at AMNH.

A useful bit of context and perspective for Tuesday. Goes quite nicely with the previous post, actually. Best viewed full screen with headphones. [NOTES: Film was created for an exibition at the Rubin Museum of Art. Music by Hans Zimmer].
