Neat! I could do without the "star" nature music and narration, they're just annoying.

Incomprehensible and overwhelming to my feeble mind, but relaxing to my spirit.

Interesting. The astronomers were brave to focus on nothing. Now the question is, "Why is there something, rather than nothing?"

I have seen this before. But watch it every time.

It still .......... humbles.

Question: if something is 'moving away from us at faster that the speed of light', HTF can we detect it? The only thing that travels faster than light is imaginary bullshit. And if it's travelling that fast, not even the smell remains.

Never mind, declare something in sepulchral tones accompanied by pretty computer graphics and put the NASA logo on it - then it immediately transforms into 'scientific fact'. Has someone asked these geeks to sort out something closer to home - like the Federal Deficit? I can smell the corruption of that from here.
