27 Billion Light Years in 6 minutes

(Via The Daily What) Another one of those great zoom-out, zoom-in clips, but carefully mapped rather than impressionistic... an interesting way to represent, not so much all the astronomical data, but the extent and limits of that data.

We can quantify the universe we live in... I deal with exponentials nearly as easily as fish deal with water... but we can't comprehend it. Our minds are much too limited.
