The Known Universe - from AMNH

Share this with your science teachers. Maybe it's just me, but this kind of stuff is just So difficult to comprehend. There are a few animations out there that do a nice job in trying to help one grasp the concept of the vastness of space. And, the images from the Hubble spacecraft never cease to boggle my mind. This video, from the American Museum of Natural History, is one that you should see. Share it with your students, too.

The viewer starts at the Himalayan mountains, and then goes further and further into space until.. well, until the distances are no longer meaningful, at least to me. Then it returns. The round trip will SURE to impress.
