Amazing. The first 5 minutes may leave you in wonder-tears.

Thank you, Snaggy. It reminded my why I wanted to be a scientist as a child. (And why I ended up giving up on religion, too.)

Snaggy, VERY cool!

I've seen a few of the initial sort of time lapse videos on Vimeo before, but the overall presentation was quite incredible. I think the tail end was a bit over the top, though. :/

All in all, I would only throw in the grand bus ad slogan "Just be good for goodness' sake." [Smile]
