“The Most Important Image Ever Taken”

Here’s a pretty nifty YouTube docu-vid of the Hubble Deep Field image. The vid tries to give you a sense of how incomprehensibly immense our universe is. The astronomical mind-bending is unfortunately impacted by a somewhat overly breathy narration and a horrific soundtrack (after the awesome Pink Floyd intro). As one commenter so aptly put it: “78 billion galaxies and we are the one’s stuck with Zamfir flute soundtracks for our short astronomical features.”
