~~Sigh~~Such a waste of cannon. Ya know they filled the barrels of the cannons with concrete.
... The stars were suns, but so far away they were just little points of light ... The scale of the universe suddenly opened up to me. It was a kind of religious experience. There was a magnificence to it, a grandeur, a scale which has never left me. Never ever left me.

Are we clear?
Did anyone notice toward the end of the clip, after the particulates started to slow down, the clouds appeared to become gravitationally pulled in by the surrounding stars? Is this an optical illusion? How far away are those stars from each other? How fast was the cloud moving?
Such potential!
