Video: Powers of Ten

I don’t think language can cope with the magnificence of space. We need to evolve and come up with new words to explain the massive scale of the universe, not just mathematically, but linguistically. Visually, i believe we can. Thanks to our up to date telescopes. We not only can measure space but we can see it too (up to a certain point, which is before the big bang). We are able to go back in time to hundreds of millions of  light years to appreciate the construct of the universe.  This 1977 video is one of many showing us visually the space we live in.
