Synopsis: With the invention of the telescope and the further development of the technology we got more and more detailed picture of the world around us. We learned more and more about the stars, birth of stars and the star death. Stars provide the essential light for life. We discovered that almost every chemical element in our body was formed inside the stars. The formation of our solar system is also caused by previously lived stars. Our galaxy formation is the result of a supernova shock wave. Our existence is a natural consequence of the existence of the stars, so we can suppose the idea that in our distant galaxies our distant relatives lives.
Each frame in the animation was made or reproduced with a flatbed scanner.
