Pursuit of Light: The Earth & Beyond Seen with NASA’s Amazing Data Visualizations

Last week NASA released Pur­suit of Light, a short HD film that uses amaz­ing data visu­al­iza­tions (mixed with live action footage) to tell sto­ries about the Earth, The Moon, The Sun, The Plan­ets, and the Deep Sky. And it’s all “wrapped in poet­ic impli­ca­tion about human­i­ty’s need to explore,” says the film’s pro­duc­er. Pur­suit of Light will appear on Hyper­walls around the coun­try, a new screen tech­nol­o­gy cre­at­ed by NASA’s God­dard Space Flight Cen­ter. But you can watch it first on the web, or freely down­load it here. H/T Metafil­ter
