Mind Boggling Video Flies Through Galaxies

Hey Space Placers!

You owe it to yourself to watch this video made with real images the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). These are REAL galaxies that you are seeing in a three dimensional view as you "fly" through and amongst the trillions upon trillions of stars and planets that reside within all of these island Universes.

I suggest that you download it watch it in a dark room with your screen at full brightness and do so several times as you will see something new each time.

What impressed me the most, besides the sheer number and variety of galaxies we see, are the strings and clusters of galaxies that we encounter. These are real structures and it is most enlightening to see them in all of their massive and far reaching splendor. Studying this structure may help us unravel the mysteries of dark matter and dark energy.
