A short video that puts things into perspective.

Please note that the phenomena depicted here are extremely condensed. That should come as no surprise, of course, as 13.8 billion years of the universe’s history into just under four minutes.

    On a related note: “A team of researchers led by astronomer Ivan Ramirez of The University of Texas at Austin has identified the first “sibling” of the sun—a star almost certainly born from the same cloud of gas and dust as our star….”: http://phys.org/news/2014-05-astronomers-sun-long-lost-brother-pave.html

    I’m quite underwhelmed.

    What’s the purpose of this video? Aside from being just yet another video about the origins of the universe. Whoppitty-do.

    The video shows nothing new, and it shows no new real presentation of information already known.

    The video looks to me as little more than a grab for page hits. And, sadly, it looks like it might succeed…..

    The thing I always found interesting is that iron is a dead-end for typical stellar fusion. Iron (and everything heavier) takes energy out of the system, rather than adding it, so fusion stops creating energy when it gets to iron, and the star collapses.

    So all the elements on on planet heavier than iron (copper, for example) did not come from steller fusion, and did not get here from the nova of “normal” stars. Instead they were produced (and could only be scattered) by much bigger forces, like supernova.

    Had the 221 secs of the video been proportional to the 13.8 billion years of universal age,
    the time spent discussing humans would have blipped by subliminally in 3/1000 of a second.
