This amazing video from Alphonse Swinehart on Vimeo gives you an inkling of the enormity of space, and how big the smallest portion of it (ie. our solar system) is.
Imagine you could travel away from the sun at the speed of light – That’s exactly what this incredible simulation shows, with a suitably epic soundtrack.
And if you really want your mind blown? About 8 minutes in, when a little marble called Earth zips past – Just try to imagine how tiny we are on there.
