A Tribute to Hubble… and Humanity

Here’s a excellent video compilation featuring images from the Hubble Space Telescope, along with music by Kanye West and quotes from astronomers Neil deGrasse Tyson, Lawrence Krauss and Carl Sagan reflecting on our place in the Universe… and the Universe’s place within each of us.

Uploaded to YouTube by video editor Brandon Fibbs, this is a reminder of how Hubble has opened our eyes to the wonders of the cosmos. Enjoy.

“The cosmos is also within us. We’re made of star stuff… we are a way for the cosmos to know itself.”
– Carl Sagan
