Videos I found on another blog (or: has it come to this already?)

These two videos are mind-boggling.

This first one is from an IMAX documentary called "Cosmic Voyage" (narrated by Morgan Freeman), which I was lucky enough to see when it came out in `96. Each circle (they’re kinda hard to see at first) is ten times larger than the one before it, which helps you to wrap your mind around just how insanely large the universe is. Well, it helps a little. It’s still too large for the human mind to comprehend; after all, I still think California is pretty far away.

Next, a video that helps you to understand how large many of the celestial bodies of our universe are. It’s really cool because it shows you just how small Earth is in relation to the gas giants (Neptune, Saturn, Jupiter), and then how small the gas giants are in relation to our sun (Sol), and then how small our sun is in relation to other stars. Again, it’s mind-boggling.
