Dear Mr. and Miss Fancy Pants: If you're currently worried about something that might be considered wildly trivial in the grand scheme of things, but have kind of forgotten what the grand scheme of things looks like? Here's what the grand scheme of things looks like.
It's a short video about how the Hubble Telescope took a picture of deep, deep, DEEP space called the "Hubble Ultra Deep Field"—which would be cool enough, but these guys have animated the photo and go a step further by making it 3-D, and… well, let's just say this moving image of 10,000 galaxies is dripping with "grand scheme-iness."
Watch this in "full screen mode" and prepare your ego to be reduced just a smidge.
