The Known Universe

Source: ...

The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere 
and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, 
and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world's most complete 
four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained
and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History.
The new film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos:
From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in 
Manhattan through May 2010
