Lyrics
If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch
You must first invent the universe

Space is filled with a network of wormholes
You might emerge somewhere else in space
Some when-else in time

The sky calls to us
If we do not destroy ourselves
We will one day venture to the stars

A still more glorious dawn awaits
Not a sunrise, but a galaxy rise
A morning filled with 400 billion suns
The rising of the milky way

The Cosmos is full beyond measure of elegant truths
Of exquisite interrelationships
Of the awesome machinery of nature

I believe our future depends powerfully
On how well we understand this cosmos
In which we float like a mote of dust
In the morning sky

But the brain does much more than just recollect
It inter-compares, it synthesizes, it analyzes
it generates abstractions

The simplest thought like the concept of the number one
Has an elaborate logical underpinning
The brain has its own language
For testing the structure and consistency of the world

For thousands of years
People have wondered about the universe
Did it stretch out forever
Or was there a limit

From the big bang to black holes
From dark matter to a possible big crunch
Our image of the universe today
Is full of strange sounding ideas

How lucky we are to live in this time
The first moment in human history
When we are in fact visiting other worlds

The surface of the earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean
Recently we've waded a little way out
And the water seems inviting

ANON I LOVE YOU. You made me the multifandom space vid I wished for and it's even better than I dreamed :D Thank you so much! I love all of these movies on their own, and you blended them together in this magnificent mix. I'm so glad you added Cosmos and Interstellar to my list btw - they fit so well!

Thank YOU for mentioning the idea! And Neil Degrasse Tyson for agreeing to do a promo video for The Martian that looks like Cosmos; I got a few really good shots from there, as well as from some of the other promo materials. Space ftw!

Current favorite individual moments:

"From scratch" as Watney tries to build survivable conditions

"The sky calls to us" - Tom Hanks :,( knowing what is coming

Murph's chalkboard on "elegant truths"

The timing of Krantz's touching of the X marks

Use of the giant "Hope" poster, because it's not just hope for Watney, it's our hope for what we can do and learn when we get off our planet

Europa crew looking so deeply joyous at discovering new things

Those last few clips ♥

Oh my goodness, this is the most beautiful thing. It made me well up... Everything that draws us in to science fiction and science fact, the joy and hope and beauty of what it could mean to explore the universe *without* colonizing it (a world of science and wonder not dominated by white men, yay!) I'm going to be watching and recommending this many times.

BRAVO, VIDDER. That was absolutely incredible! The song choice was inspired and the way you blended all the sources together with such a clear focus... An awesome tribute to the wonders of space exploration and the real, human determination and work and science! behind it. This is definitely one of my favorite festivids of the year.

Goosebumps. Fantastic song choice and editing. I love how real and close all of this feels, both the precariousness and the excitement of standing on the edge of the unknown and venturing out. That you take time for all the science shots and for lingering on people's faces, on their reactions to what they see and discover. Glorious from start to finish. <3
