powers of ten - galaxy song

the first video is the fabulous "powers of ten" video produced by architects charles and ray eames in 1977. this 10 minute feature shows the scale of the universe, from a cell in our body, to a galaxy out in space!

"Eventually, everything connects." — Charles Eames

this couple minute video shows the "powers of ten" movie while playing the brilliant "galaxy song" by eric idle. just as carl sagan's COSMOS has stood up the test of time, Paul Kohlmiller tells us that the galaxy song does too!

here's the original version of the "galaxy song", shown in the monty python classic film... "the meaning of life".
