Prelude/Introduction to Astronomy and Space Exploration
From YouTube, produced by Gregorio Educational Productions
Some of the visuals took this viewer's breath away. This is a 4.5 minute HD dramatic video choreographed to powerful music, which introduces the viewer to the wonders of Astronomy. There is no narration, but none is needed. It is designed as a "trailer" to be shown in classrooms by Earth Science and Astronomy teachers in High School and college as a visual "Introduction" to the magic of the cosmos. (04:46) This is a good way to introduce/hook students on the science of space exploration.
