Berkeley Lab Presents A Flight Through the Universe

Sit back, relax, and check out this video shared by Berkeley Lab titled A Flight Through the Universe.

“This animated flight through the universe was made by Miguel Aragon of Johns Hopkins University with Mark Subbarao of the Adler Planetarium and Alex Szalay of Johns Hopkins. There are close to 400,000 galaxies in the animation, with images of the actual galaxies in these positions (or in some cases their near cousins in type) derived from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Data Release 7.”

At only about two minutes, it’s a rather short trip. And yet, it covers a vast number of galaxies as the camera zooms through the cosmos. Really makes you wonder about all the different worlds out there, and what might exist on each one of them.
