    Mind blowing Hubbel video

    It's impossible to explain the awesomeness of this video:

    Hell Yeah, Hubble! : Starts With A Bang

    Amazing. I don't know how anyone can watch that and not come to the conclusion that there is life elsewhere in the universe. Whether mankind will ever meet it is another question.

    I think the only way I could be more inspired by the video is if Tim Tebow narrated it.

    I can hardly wait until we can travel through hyperspace. Alas, as we all know, traveling through hyperspace ain't like dusting crops - without precise calculations we could fly right through a star or bounce too close to a supernova, and that'd end our trip real quick.

    Anytime I think about space/universe, it blows my mind. Just can't get my arms around it. Amazing.

    Re: Mind blowing Hubbel video

    Very cool.

    Question though: The narrator says that what we see is expanding away from us in the speck of sky. He also says some galaxies are moving away very quickly, in some cases faster than the speed of light. How is that possible? If it were moving away from our eye at faster than the speed of light, how would that light ever reach our eye?

    Space is cool.

    That statement caught me as curious as well. I have no idea, and I'm not sure I'd understand if they explained it to me.

    You must have missed the highly touted Astrophysicist vs. American Gladiators mini-series.
