NASA just released a promotional video featuring some absolutely gorgeous space imagery. You should watch it. Right now.

Not every NASA video is a winner. Case in point: the Agency's comically lame astronaut recruitment video.

But this video? This video is excellent. Probably because it was produced by the folks at NASA's Goddard Multimedia team, who have a proven track record when it comes to mind-blowingly awesome space media.

This particular featurette, titled Pursuit of Light, really captures what NASA is all about: big questions and big ideas. Under just about any other circumstances, NASA's tag line of "It's six minutes from Earth to forever, and you can see it here!" would sound corny. But here, it couldn't be more fitting.

Full screen, HD, sound up. You know the drill. [NASA Goddard]
