Last night we watched Cosmic Voyage, originally filmed in IMAX.
Produced with support from the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, this Oscar-nominated IMAX film mixes groundbreaking computer animation with cutting-edge science to give us a sweeping view of the universe. A “cosmic zoom” extends from the surface of the Earth to the largest observable structures of the universe, and then back down into the subnuclear realm — a guided tour across 42 orders of magnitude! Morgan Freeman narrates.
We are still talking a lot about space and this tied in pretty well with our topic. I liked that it gave some sense of scale when talking about distances between cosmic objects (and microcosmic ones, too).
