15 minutes about: Our Place in the Universe

How can we possibly comprehend our place in the universe? I discuss this topic frequently during star parties and enjoy sharing my thoughts about how we can relate to the universe in a more tangible way. I created a 15 minute talk about this as part of an innovative science talk series in Munich, 15x4 Knowledge. The talk covers the various 'levels of scale' that define our universe, from our home planet Earth through the Solar System, Milky Way galaxy, the Local Galactic Group, to the Laniakea Supercluster. As the name of the series suggests, four speakers give 15 minute talks in a single the evening and it was an honor to be a part of their program. More videos from 15x4 Munich can be found on YouTube.
