The universe is big. Really big. A recent movie created by the American Museum of Natural History shows you exactly how unfathomably huge it really is, or at least how unfathomably huge are the parts of it that we know. Surely, there is more beyond.
The movie, The Known Universe, takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang.
Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world’s most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History.
The film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe.
