It is very difficult to realize the vastness of the universe and to help us, scientists have made a video using all the scientific information known to date by the man. Using different scales, it explains very clearly the huge size of the space starting from a small portion of the earth to the ends of the universe.
This video was produced by the Hayden Planetarium, located in downtown New York. In six minutes, it makes us walk more than 14 billion light-years away from Earth and then return back. It teaches us many things about the universe in which we live in. The data incorporated in this film comes from dozens of organizations around the world.
The orbit of the Moon
The orbit of other planets
the solar system
The constellations of the Zodiac
The brightness of the Sun, compared to other stars (distance from Earth: a light year)
Extent of humanity’s first radio signals from Earth (distance 70 light years)
The Milky Way (distance 100 000 light-years)
The galaxies around (distance: one million light years)
The galaxies mapped by humans (distance: 100 million light years)
The areas that we need to map
Quasars, the most distant objects we can see
Light of the Universe when it was younger just after big bang
Our cosmic horizon
We were blown away by the universe and its immeasurable size! With this video and its different perspectives, we can make ourselves better aware of its vastness. While seeing this video, some of our friends want to explore other galaxies, although this will remain an unfulfilled fantasy in the near future. After seeing this film, do you think we have mapped most of the universe or do you think we are going to discover a universe bigger than what we have known?
