Jaw dropping, heart stopping, mind blowing. Just a few phrases that popped into my head when I first saw this incredible digitally created journey mapping the universe, all the way from Earth, through our solar system, out to the Milky Way, zooming all the way back to show the afterglow of the Big Bang and Quasars, the furthest objects we're currently able to see.

If you're ready to feel intensely significant (as the only known inhabited planet) and incredibly insignificant at the same time (even our galaxy is tiny), take a look at this brilliant YouTube video of the observable universe by the American Museum of Natural History.
