the-known-universe-3-d-journey-through-the-observable-universe

American Museum of Natural History created a filmThe Known Universeas a part of an exhibition called “Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe” held at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan in May last year. The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world’s most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History.
