Space is Big

I came across this video earlier today. It is really amazing how big everything really is. Check it out, it’s amazing. And I leave you with one of my favorite quotes.

“Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space.” Douglas Adams

  1. I love that quote. I wish I could have found a way to work it into the video.

    BTW, I want to point out a change in the script. I’ve recently read a paper in the journal Physical Review Letters which puts the radius of the universe at 46.5 billion light years and not 78 billion as I mention in the video.

    I’m currently redoing the narration to reflect the change. The wikipedia entry that I used as a source has been changed to reflect the new research.
