Thanks for sharing, Abq. I love these kinds of scale films, and their humbling effect.

I didn't realize that we have yet to actually map what looked like half of the observable
Universe, or at least two immense* swaths of it. I wonder how much the human world
and relations among us would change if every single individual was aware of the true dimensions of
the Universe and our puny place in it.

*Words like 'immense', 'great', and 'awesome' just don't seem to suffice. Newer, compound words like 'ultra-fantastic' or 'hyper-magnificent' don't do the Universe justice either. Man, we're going to need some new words! :)
