In the Blink of an Eye : #Space in an Instant
When we look up at night, the universe seems pretty quiet. But that perspective is an illusion; in reality, there are millions of world-shattering events happening every instant across the cosmos. This short film explores just how much is going on every moment in our ridiculously enormous universe. In the fraction of a second it takes to blink your eyes, thousands of stars will be born, hundreds will explode and die, millions of planets will form, and our universe will expand by half a million kilometers in diameter. And these numbers only account for the observable universe — not for what could be happening beyond, where some scientists believe there could be an infinite expanse of space.
Think next time you blink.
