The Universe is expanding....


6df Galaxy Survey fly through from ICRAR on Vimeo.

Of course we've known that since the 1920's but a couple of smart fellows (Astrophysicists) independently realized that it was expanding at an ever increasing rate (And won the Nobel prize for their efforts) and that it has to do with dark energy. I heard all of this on my way to yoga this morning and it captured my imagination like science and nature so often did for me when I was a kid. It was really lovely to float along in that child like wonder this am so I thought I'd share it with you too. I looked to see if I could find a visualization of this expansion thinking I might find a diagram or a photograph but I found this amazing animation instead.
