Inspired by Digital Universe Atlas ( definitive four dimensional map of our universe maintained by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History ) the museum created The Known Universe, part of their 2009 exhibit Visions of the Cosmos.
The Known Universe –
In 2009 the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) debuted The Known Universe for an exhibit at Rubin Museum of Art in New York City. AMNH and Hayden Planetarium astrophysicists resourced Digital Universe Atlas to produce five and a half minutes capable of unfurling the sternest brow. Our world would be a better place if everyone stopped talking long enough to ponder a space video before bed.
Ponder The Known Universe, a short film by the American Natural History Museum. Next – allow Hubble to hijack senses. Follow with reverence demanded by solar symphonies. Finally – drift softly back to Earth wrapped in the arms of Aurora.
