The Weekly Filet brings you the five best links of the week, every Friday. Making sense of the big issues of our time (with a healthy dose of serendipity and nerdiness). Curated by journalist David Bauer.

Things that would like to be stars

No matter how many animations and visualisations I see on the vastness of the universe, Iโ€™m never not fascinated when I see a new one. This animated video focuses less on distances between various planets and stars, but on what these stars are actually like. Can you imagine something 500000 times brighter than the sun? Like I said: never not fascinated.
