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..

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.

Oi don't spoil this phenomenal thread with tennis  :mad1:  ..-)

Btw if anyone has some recommendations about some tv series or documentaries, I'm all ears...  :)~

Let's see what I've watched so far....
Cosmos 1980 by Carl Sagan
The Universe History Channel 2007-

Also about to watch ''Through the wormhole'' with all mighty Morgan Freeman  :not worthy:

My friend mentioned me smth called ''Hubble's Canvas'', so anyone actually saw it?

Haven't seen this one, actually every once in awhile I do some searching and if I find anything new I post it here.

We've got a fair idea of the physical boundaries of the universe, still even with that nothing is set in stone and theories haven't been proven.
 
 
This clip is quite a bit different way of looking at the universe, The narration is done by one of my favorite actors, Morgan Freeman.  :king: 
 
 
 
Is The Universe Alive?

After watching many documentaries I finally watched the 1st episode of 'Through the Wormhole'.
I'm surprised, it was really good.
Morgan Freeman's narration is fantastic man.
