Standing on the Shoulders of Giants – YouTube

Excellent 17 minute quick overview of the history of astronomy replete with nifty animations gleaned and used well from documentaries.  It also conveys (lightly) our understanding of where we are and just how small our place is the Universe…  (with a teeny tiny touch of irreligiousity at the end).  It should be mentioned that this is just a taste of the wonder that is Astronomy.  But if you’re someone who probably wont pursue Astronomy further, it’s a great taste.
