Millennium Simulation

This is perhaps my favorite video on YouTube. It is the Millennium Simulation. A computer program designed to lay bare the landscape of our known universe. The important (and perhaps impossible…for me at least) thing to consider is that each and every pin point of light is not a star, but is instead an entire cluster of galaxies. To date this simulation does not even encompass the entire known universe.
