  • [extremely offtopic] The coolest, most memorable video you will ever see in your life

    Before you read this I want to warn you: if you're depressed then do _NOT_ watch this!

    So here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17jymDn0W6U

    I suggest fullscreen it and put it at least on 480p!

        Well if you ever think about space, for example when you look up into the sky at night, or when you see a movie that involves space, you now will constantly think about what you saw in that video. How large it is and all. You may _know_ how large it is but visualising it through this trip was pretty mind-blowing for me.

        "Dad, how big is the space? Where does it end?"

        Also this video has correct images and data. Others are mostly artist interpretations.

        But if you've got cooler video's then please care to share

          BBC's "The Universe" series might be worth your time

            There seems to be so much with "Universe" in the title that BBC has ever broadcasted that it turns Googles search algorythm inside out xD
            Also the iPlayer doesn't list that series.

            However I came to find a bundle with BBC in the title that had the same cover as this: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1051155/ , but then with a different title.

              Oops, it's not BBC, it's History Channel. It consists of 5 seasons.

                    How exactly did you obtain it? Converted (legaly bought ofcourse ) Blu-Ray? xD

                    PS: Not that I would ever download some copyrighted material

                      Uhm, well. Let's see... I, uhm, bought it on Blu-Ray, and then downloaded it through p2p. Since I bought the Blu-Ray, I was licensed to download it.

                      (I wasn't that convincing, huh? :P)

                        The question, if the at the edges of the known universe, or let us say 3 billions light years away, we are seeing now the light of objects 3 billions yrs ago, I just want to know what is going on there now?

                          you should call them and just ask. But beware, intergalactic rates are very high.

                              Maybe the universe has ended and we can't see it yet. Or maybe something amazing is taking place and we will never know.
                              Amazing video!

                              PS: I ticked the 720p option and it stuttered a bit. Thank you for that Adobe!!
