Zoom from the edge of the universe to the quantum foam of spacetime and learn the scale of things along the way! Learn the size of the Pillars of Creation and marvel at the minuscule scale of a neutrino!

ARROW KEYS! ARROW KEYS! You can use arrow keys if the scroll bar is too sensitive.

Thank you so much for your high ratings and rave reviews!

Highly educational, and very interesting

This is not only very educational, but a very interesting tool which makes it fun to view and compare the sizes of both the smallest and largest objects known to man.

The "toward-and-away" zooming was the perfect format for this type of presentation.
As well, your numerous and concise add-ons added an even greater perspective and in-depth look at the mass of numerous objects, and made it easier to understand the scope of the size comparison thereof.

For one, the meter was the central unit of measurement used in this presentation. With the meter (measurement) and humans in the center, that made it the focal point (and fulcrum) of the scale. The perfect starting point, as we are comparing the mass of everything from ourselves.

The in-place measurements along the scale made it easy mathwise to quickly understand the size of that unit of measurement versus a single meter. With the size of the average human listed at 1.7 meters, that doubles our perception.

All in all, fully in-depth, easy to understand, and very well done.
