Hey Space Placers!
A step back from Mars and into the deep cosmos.
Here is a movie that shows the birth of galaxies and their evolution to the present day that was created using new software and modern up to date observations: http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/image_archive/2012/85/animation.mov
Here is the background on the project, including the links to the technical papers: http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/news/2012/pr201223.html
And finally, here is a WONDERFUL "Fly Through the Universe" video that was created using the very latest observations from the SLoan Deep Sky Survey: http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap120813.html
Sit back, relax, turn the lights off and enjoy the view.
