Yes, it's beautiful!

On what size screen? ;)

I've watched it on a 48" screen and although it looked quite nice indeed it left something to be desired... I bet that 4K on a 48" screen (or larger) would do it justice!

I love marine biology, particularly the study of sharks. The ocean and its denizens are a big passion of mine. I minored in marine biology when I was in college and have traveled to South Australia twice and Nothern California once to observe great whites. When my wife and I retire, I might make it three!

I believe the smallest practical screen size in 4K display monitors will be at least 58".

Anything smaller than that would offer no benefit whatsoever over current bog-standard display monitors.

Love the video! And...It's nice to hear from you. Been time traveling somewhere? ;)

"But since time slows down aboard the starship, according to Einstein's special theory of relativity, the crew could reach the Pleiades star-cluster (M45), which is 400 light-years away, in as little as eleven years, by the clocks aboard the starship. After 25 shipboard years, such a ship could even reach the Great Andromeda Galaxy - although over 2 million years would have passed on the earth.

Wormholes were first introduced to the public over a century ago in a book written by an Oxford mathematician. Perhaps realizing that adults might frown on the idea of multiply connected spaces, he wrote the book under a pseudonym and wrote it for children. His name was Charles Dodgson, his pseudonym was Lewis Carroll, and the book was Through The Looking Glass."

It's also fascinating to imagine Johannes Kepler writing one of the first Science Fiction books "Somnium".

Here's a cool video on Andromeda and our other neighbors:
