It's a little over six minutes long; a video montage put together and narrated by a professional astronomer. Puts some perspective into the size of the universe, and does a nifty job slicing up and explaining images from the Hubble Deep Image Field photos. Also contains a little Numa Numa guy, but just try to ignore that part of it, it's over quickly enough. =)
