Total Perspective Vortex

Here is an animation which takes you from the Himalayas, out into space, and to the limits of the observable Universe and back in six minutes. It's quite mind-expanding.

I was thinking that the scrappy bit of fossil I got from the limestone bank in Dudley is 400 million years old, and 400 million light years is about as far out as it gets when you see the message 'the empty areas where we have yet to map'. When I touch an old fossil like that, I want to feel that time.
