Cosmic Eye

This is the original landscape-format version of the short movie Cosmic Eye, designed by astrophysicist Danail Obreschkow. The movie zooms through all well-known scales of the universe from minuscule elementary particles out to the gigantic cosmic web. This project was inspired by a progression of increasingly accurate graphical representations of the scales of the universe, including the classical essay „Cosmic View“ by Kees Boeke (1957), the short movie „Cosmic Zoom“ by Eva Szasz (1968), and the legendary movie „Powers of Ten“ by Charles and Ray Eames (1977). Cosmic Eye takes these historical visualisations to the state-of-the-art using real photographs obtained with modern detectors, telescopes, and microscopes. Other views are renderings of modern computer models. Vector-based blending techniques are used to create a seamless zoom.


That’s cool and reminds me how irrelevant mankind is and how cocky we are. Plus it is nearly impossible that the earth is the only place with living creatures. :alien: :purple_heart:


What a mind teaser and I didn’t even had to smoke a skinny one.
