2009, The International Year of Astronomy Trailer (Video)

In December 2007, the year 2009 was designated by the United Nations as the International Year of Astronomy. In a bid to increase the awareness of astronomy and our place in the Universe, 2009 will be a year to learn about astronomy as a science and gain a better personal understanding of what we know about the cosmos. Today they released a superb trailer advertising the occasion…

As quoted from the IYA website:

The vision of the International Year of Astronomy 2009 is to help the citizens of the world rediscover their place in the Universe through the day- and night time sky, and thereby engage a personal sense of wonder and discovery. All humans should realize the impact of astronomy and basic sciences on our daily lives, and understand better how scientific knowledge can contribute to a more equitable and peaceful society.

Inspiring stuff. Today, the IYA released a video trailer about what 2009 will mean to us all:
