“The important thing is to not stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvellous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day.” - Albert Einstein
We all have at a point of life might have thought of a potential life exists in outer space, beyond far away stars, galaxies and in the known universe, there might be a chance that you have pondered and imagined all the possibilities to explore, you might have thought what exactly is out there millions of light years away, far enough that even our imagination would sometimes feel incapacitated, despite having limitless strength of our powerful cognitive ability.

If you really want to get amazed about the Universe then I would recommend you to watch this awesome video, titled “The Known Universe”, it takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world’s most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History. The new film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010.
