This little video, brought to us by NASA Goddard, shows off all of the galaxies we’re currently aware of, in one swirling, fluid shot.

All We Can See NASA It’s like the visualizer your freshman college roommate used to stare at on his laptop while listening to Sigur Ros, under the influence of who knows what–but for real.

Apparently the video was created by taking images from the Hubble telescope and several other sources and placing them in a virtual 3-D space, corresponding to our viewing vantage point. Basically, it’s a 3-D video tour of the universe as we know it at the moment.
