From MSN:

Fastest universe tour ever takes you billions of years in 7 minutes

That dream of going beyond time, space and motion has finally been answered in the form of this video tour of the known universe. Don’t panic, the trip is only 13 billion years and includes every inch of the universe from the Himalayas to the Milky Way and every planet and quasar until you finally experience the power, or at least the afterglow, of the Big Bang. It’s all made possible by astrophysicists with the dream job of maintaining the four-dimensional Digital Universe Atlas, and enhanced with music by the king of Hollywood movie scores, Hans Zimmer. Don’t miss the trip back; knowing where you’re going puts a different existential spin on the whole journey.

They chose the perfect music to pair this video with.

It reminds me of the Total Perspective Vortex (from HHGTTG), a torture device which annihilates you by showing you just how infinitesimally small you are compared to the Universe that Zaphod Beeblebrox went through in The Restaurant at the End of the Universe!

I feel small....and a little dizzy. Image
