Another amazing video

Another stunningly beautiful video visually describing our place in the universe.

The bit that struck me the most was how small our sphere of entire radio wave transmission is, compared to the size of the galaxy. Pretty obvious when you think about it but putting it into this visualisation really helps to grasp the sense of scale.

I love the mapping of all the earth’s satellites too.

    Thanks Suz, my brain just dribbled out of my ears.
    That video is awesome (in the literal sense of the word), it really blows the mind when you see how big the universe is. It really is really very big.
