The history of the universe in dominoes

The history of the universe is usually not told in dominoes. But this unique video uses dominoes as a motif to explain how the universe evolved from the big bang on. Over the course of 13,7999 dominoes––each domino representing a million years––the host explains how the big bang catalyzed atoms to join, create stars that explode and send their elements out, and so and so forth. The video also explains the origins of our own galaxy, why it’s called the Milky Way, and why it has its shape.

More great science.

    Amazing project… the dominos really put things into perspective, as it’s so difficult to grasp how much time has elapsed
