Here's what it would look like to fly directly into a nebula

Ever wondered what it would be like to look out the window of a spaceship as it travels through space? Wonder no more. This video gives you a spaceship's-eye view as you blast off from a mountain range in Earth, fly through the stars, then move closer and closer to a distant brightness in the sky, until you're dropped right into the middle of the Orion nebula. And it does it all in 2 minutes — fortunate, as the Orion Nebula is 1300 lightyears away.

The video was created by Isidro Villó, who made the video by combining an automated super telephoto zoom lens with the exposure time of a DSLR camera, in a process that he calls "deep sky time lapse".
