AstroAlert: Charlotte’s Daydream

Hi everyone,
[vcex_spacing size=”10px”]
If you like the intersection of science and art, then you might enjoy this short (1:50) animated film by Dutch artist Marlies van der Wel. She describes it this way:

“An astronomer observes the universe from her observatory. When a black hole approaches, she jumps in and gets a glimpse of the earth from the universe.”

You can watch the animation, which is set to a nice piano score by composer Pieter de Graaf, by clicking below:

And if you’d like to know more about the thought behind the video, you’ll find additional info here.
