The Known Universe

You may have seen the documentary Cosmic Voyage with Morgan Freeman before, and its famous and powerful visualization of the powers of ten. If you haven't, check it out now.

Today's magnificent video, based on data from the world's most complete four-dimensional map of the universe (the Digital Universe Atlas from the American Museum of Natural History), takes you on a quick but fabulous journey of the universe as we know it today, departing from the majestic heights of the Himalayas and extending back to the very edge of time and space. Just sit back and enjoy the ride...

Update: Here is Carter Emmar, proving an explanation of how this project was put together, and how it's now being shared with schools and other educational institutions around the world.

I wonder if they used Google Earth :)
