--- Quote from: Lugburz on June 15, 2012, 10:13:04 AM ---Yeah I remember 1st time seeing that video of the known universe, I was blown away. Def, one of my fave yt videos..

Also, a very good watch which I own: Cosmos by Carl Sagan and The Universe by History Channel. 'The Universe' is very good in first few seasons, and then it starts to repeat itself and aim much more towards fiction than science. But still pretty solid attempt...
Cosmos by Sagan is prolly still the best universe thingy out there..

That kind of stuff is just so amazing and almost seems not real.
 
 

jesse james:
i've always loved cosmology and am interested to the point of obsession in the not unrelated topics of consciousness and artificial intelligence.
  The sheer vastness of the cosmos is mind boggling, but even more so the fact that there are entities within it who can contemplate it's magnificence. Some interpretations of quantum mechanics posit a special role for consciousness in the process of quantum measurement, the wave function collapse for example.
  it's as if the that riddle about  'If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?' could be applied to the entire universe.
  Oh, and shine on you crazy diamond, cool.
