Journey to the Edge of the Universe

Sometimes when I feel I’m losing sight of the wonder of this existence, not just here on this planet, but in this solar system, in this galaxy, in this unimaginably vast and still largely mysterious universe, I like to watch videos like this one in order to be reminded of just how amazing is the fact that all this exists and that we as human beings are not only part of it but able to perceive it, contemplate it, study it, and in some measure understand it. And I think that might be the longest run-on sentence I’ve ever written.

Journey to the Edge of the Universe (Sean Pertwee) – Full HD 1080p

“National Geographic presents the first accurate non-stop voyage from Earth to the edge of the Universe using a single, unbroken shot through the use of spectacular CGI (Computer-Generated Imagery) technology. Building on images taken from the Hubble telescope, Journey to the Edge of the Universe explores the science and history behind the distant celestial bodies in the solar system. This spectacular, epic voyage across the cosmos, takes us from the Earth, past the Moon and our neighboring planets, out of our Solar System, to the nearest stars, nebulae and galaxies and beyond – right to the edge of the Universe itself. When you finish this video, you will walk away from it with an awareness that you never had before, of the unseen astronomically massive universe that we float around on like a spec of dust in the ocean. This video takes you on a journey through the universe as if you are watching a Sci Fi adventure. Yet you constantly have to remind yourself that what you’re seeing is really out there.”

Note: The opening credits say “Narrated by Alec Baldwin“, but this version is narrated by Sean Pertwee, as indicated in the YouTube video’s title.
