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!

Super Cool

Looks like you put alot of work and research into this, good job man. Very interesting and even enlightening, my only criticism is that sometimes it hard to read and see the things that are on the fringes of the frame as you're zooming out, and to read them you need to zoom out further which makes the text/image too small to see.
Maybe if you had implemented the arrow keys to give the user a limited amount of moveability at each zoom level? Anyhow, thats just a minor suggestion, otherwise it was amazing.

Wonderful edutainment flash

I worked for a department at a University that would have loved this as much as I do. The flash allows one to easily conceptualize the scale of everything in the universe easily, for example I didn't know x-rays were bigger than atoms, although I never really paid attention during physics. I only gave a 9 because I believe that there are many graphical improvements as well as other additions that would make this a superb flash for any science class-room. Keep up the good work!
