Have you ever wondered how big the universe is or how small the smallest things are? Morgan Freeman takes us on a journey in this an eight and a half minute video to plumb the vastness of space as well as its incredible minuteness.
Take a look:
Some insist that our universe is all a grand fluke, an accident, others insist it's intentionally designed. Some believe that there are a near infinite number of universes (the multiverse), others argue that ours is the only one for which we have any evidence.
Most scientists agree, though, that the universe described in this video started out as a point-like object which contained within its tiny circumference all the mass-energy the universe now possesses. This miniscule point, called a singularity, expanded with unimaginable rapidity at the moment of the universe's origin in an event that has come to be known as the Big Bang, and it's still expanding today.
It's all very fascinating.
