PLANETARY is a feature length documentary that expands on the mind-blowing perspective shared by astronauts and indigenous elders alike — that each and every one of us is inseparable from each other, the planet and the universe as a whole, a realisation that is both humbling and comforting. If more of us start to experience the simple truth of our interdependence and connection, we believe there is hope for the next stage in our human journey. PLANETARY is meant to inspire awe and wonder by seeing things as they are, placing our individual stories in the context of the larger planetary / cosmic story.

                from Deep Astronomy Added 25.1K 109 1

                I've recently discovered an animation that was rendered using the measured redshift of all 10,000 galaxies in the Hubble Ultra Deep Field image. I've written a short script that leads you through a quick history of both deep field images and this video ends with a fly-through of the Ultra Deep Field. Every galaxy in the image is in its proper distance as viewed from the telescope line of sight. As if this image wasn't amazing enough.

                  from Deep Astronomy Added 25K 20 0

                  The question of what caused the Big Bang is one of the most difficult facing humanity. We may never find an answer, and even if we do, we probably won't understand it. It's difficult to imagine an event occurring without a cause, and yet, that is precisely the prospect we are faced with when it comes to this question.

                  • How the Universe Was Formed


                    from Deep Astronomy Added 20.3K 22 2

                    About a half a million years after the big bang, the cosmos began to cool, as it cooled, the hot subatomic particles that constituted the early universe began to slow down and stop colliding with each other long enough so that protons, neutrons and electrons could form. The universe cooled further and the hot particles slowed further still allowing these particles to stay together long enough to create atoms.

                      from Risa Wechsler Added 19.1K 19 1

                      We see galaxies in the sky, but cannot see the dark matter clumps surrounding them. However, we can simulate them as they form in a model Universe. In this video we show how good the agreement is between the observed distribution of galaxies in the SDSS sky survey, and the predicted distribution of model galaxies associated with dark matter halos in the Bolshoi simulation. It's hard to tell them apart!
