This video is a brief introduction to the structure of the Universe. Because it begins with our solar system and travels to the edge of the Universe and the narrator clearly explains the distance and amount of time it takes to reach each marker, it helps students to understand the relationship between different objects in the Universe and the enormity of the Universe.
