Description

"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known." - Carl Sagan "We are in the Universe and the Universe is in us." - Neil deGrasse Tyson "We are a way for the Cosmos to know itself." - Carl Sagan The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world's most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History. The new film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010.
