Cosmic Eye

This movie was generated using the iOS App "Cosmic Eye", written by Danail Obreschkow at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research at the University of Western Australia. This app draws inspiration from a progression of increasingly accurate graphical representations of the scales of our Universe, including the classical movie “Powers of Ten” (1977), directed by Charles and Ray Eames, and "Cosmic Zoom" (1968), directed by Eva Szasz. Where possible, it displays real photographs obtained with modern objectives, telescopes, and microscopes. Other views are phenomenal renderings of state-of-the-art computer models.

Have you ever looked around when you’re in a big crowd of people and realize that every single person there has a story - memories, family, troubles, achievements, a first kiss, a broken heart – but you’ll never know anything about it?

There’s a word for this:
