Here are 32,000 galaxies over 0.25<z<1.35, down to stellar masses of 10^10 Msun in the first 5.25 sq degs of the XMM-LSS SWIRE field. The colors of each galaxy are coded by their [OII]3727Å star-formation rates, increasing from red to blue. The sizes of the spheres are defined by the cube root of the stellar masses. This is the first movie of manually flying through the dataset, so there is some extra jitter. Kelson needs more practice flying. An arithmetical error also plagued the recorded velocities in the upper left corner, though the redshift of the camera is recorded accurately.
