This is a cool, pretty easy to follow five minute video on the origin of our universe. It's also from the group "Minute Physics", but I figured that would tune you out immediately. Look at is this way: IT'S SCIENCE WITH CARTOONS!

I love little videos like this.  Back when you went to school you probably had one teacher who really connected with you and really made learning fun. This video is like that.  Even if you don't pick up on all of the concepts, it gives you a pretty good overall understand on how we currently look at the birth of our universe.
