On the great cosmic scale, humanity and our small home in the universe are absolutely inconsequential. In a verbose time-spaced video by John Boswell, you can see the formation and growth of the universe from the Big Bang until now.
Boswell, also known as melodysheep, has made a name over the years creating songs with autotuning from scientists like Neil deGrasse Tyson and Carl Sagan and the cast of Stranger Things on YouTube. This new video is a bit like a short documentary about the formation of the universe, with the occasional clip of notable personalities such as Brian Cox, Carl Sagan and David Attenborough.
Each second of the video represents 22 million years, and as it progresses, Boswell explains the basic concepts of how the universe evolved, from the formation of the first stars, galaxies, black holes and supernovas. It is not until more than 6 minutes in the video that our own sun and solar system begin to form, while humanity does not appear until the last fraction of a second. It is a perfect primer to review what came before us, and how small we are in the universe.
