Prepare to have your brain blown.

This video, assembled from the best available knowledge, presents the known universe to the limits of observable space and time, with every element shown as close to scale as possible, to give you an idea of just how vast the Cosmos is and how small a part of it we are.

Bear in mind that the farther we pull away from the earth, the farther back in time we are going. In fact, you haven’t gone very far before you’re in a time in which humanity did not yet exist… and then even before the earth and our solar system existed.

It’s best seen in high definition if your monitor allows, and in full screen.
