A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

Hubble Ultra Deep Field, click to see it at full resolution.

This video has been out for quite a while now, but it came up again during a discussion with one of my classes this morning. Although I’m not sure how we got from the Tang Dynasty to the Hubble ultra deep field, I did end up sharing it with them and I can say with no hyperbole that it was one of the first times this year that there was absolute silence in the room, specially towards the end of the video.

If you have a few extra minutes, click play and give it a watch. If you only have a minute, start at 2:53…

Enjoy!

  1. It’s just too nuts to even try to comprehend how insanley gigantic and infinite our universe really is.
    I think our minds just simply can’t comprehend it yet. Maybe as we evolve, we main gain additional brain power and size to fathom all this.
