History of the Universe in under six minutes

Clean animation + accurate cosmology + English accent = win, even if they did gloss over the whole, mistook the cosmic microwave background radiation as birdshit so stationed a student by the telescope with a shotgun, part of the story "by accident."

Kurzgesagt bills themselves as "nerdfighters who want to make science look beautiful. Because it is beautiful." and I'll openly admit they've got me hooked. They even give a hat-tip to the dear Doctor by describing those first few fractions of a second when the laws of physics as we know them break down into incoherence as "wibbly-wobbly." What's not to love?

Thanks to Casey Chan on Sploid for drawing my attention to the channel. Image is a still-frame from the animation, but you already know that since you've just gotten your sub-six-minute cosmology primer.
