The Story of All Stories

Our Universe is ancient and we are so very young in comparison.

Are you ready for an experience of deep space and time? Check out this video. 
Narrated by Brian Cox, Carl Sagan, and David Attenborough, and developed, edited with music, and enhanced with special effects by melodysheep, this video takes photos humanity has gathered from sources like NASA and attempts to help us understand the journey of 13.8 billion years that brought us to the current day.

Such an amazing and sacred story…
