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!

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

I'm totally reminded of spore.

I feel so small!!!

10 out of 10. 5 out of 5. 900Ym out of 900Ym.

I can't believe how small I feel now. I really wish we had technology to get out there. someone figure out how to extend the human life indefinitely so we can understand more, go farther and see what amazing things must be out there. If you try doing the math, Earth to the Estimated Universe is the same ratio of the nucleus of an atom to Earth. UNBELIEVABLE!!!

Utterly mindblowing! Incomprehensible! See, I'm wierd enough to find this intriguing. And it's only made wierder by the fact that I'm a 14-year-old boy.
lol I just cannot get over this!

P.s. Pay no attention to the h8r beneath me. :)

the game is educative, fun, fascinating, and if that wasnt cool enough for the 10 you even added the outstandingly fitting music from Spore!

Very cool

This is a very cool flash. The only problem with it (and it's a minor one, but I picked it up because I'm a physicist) is that the visible universe is not only 14billion Light Years Wide. Due to the expansion of space we can actually see 46.5 Billion Light Years on either side of us (ie. a sphere with a diameter of 93 Billion Light Years).

The thing you label "Estimated Size of the Universe" is not the estimated size, it's the actual size we can see. Outside of what we can see we don't have any estimations for how big the Universe is so there is no "True estimated size of the universe".

Other than that it's really awesome. Oh, it might've been nicer if the music looped better, it's pretty good now but a bit jarring when it finishes and starts again.
