Massage your brain with some space gifs
UCLA’s Galactic Center Group has some wildly trippy animations that allow a user to visualize the actions of objects in space in ways that can be kind of hard to think of. We’re reproducing them for you here and recommend watching them if you’re a lover of astronomy and/or are high.
Insert obligatory “Dude…. what if we’re just, like, ants” here.
Note: These images/animations were created by Prof. Andrea Ghez and her research team at UCLA and are from data sets obtained with the W. M. Keck Telescopes.
