The story of the universe rarely fails to fill me at the same time with awe, with terror, with wonder,with joy.
Here is the story in pictures that only we of this generation have ever seen. The fast version will zip through in two minutes. If like me you would also like to have time to look at the photos for a little longer than a mini-second, click on the on/off icon on the lower left of the screen, and then use the right-hand cursor movement or arrow key on your keyboard to move the pictures. Each picture takes between 4 and 7 clicks to move forward.
