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!

Rated 4 / 5 stars

educational, but not really a game

and just because you see something that doesn't make sense at first does not mean that there must be a god. this game reflects more on how amazingly things can work themselves out on their own rather than showing that there must be a supernatural being in control.
and there is no "center of the universe", unless you want to look into 4-dimensional space.

religious and scientific debates aside, this is good, but not great.
nice research!

a little rong information

it maid me feel larger but smaller at same time. the universe is actuly always expanding do to dark matter which energey is just a form of matter and vice-versa the universe just expands and creates negitve and postive space which counter each other to equal 0.000.

It was very enlightening and enjoyable! I personally love learning new things and the music helped make the whole thing enjoyable.

This is a program that, well... is AWESOME! It obviously took a lot of time to make this, but it just goes to show that hard work pays off. Good job.

When I first looked at this I thought it looked like a junior high science project, but man can first impressions be deceiving. It piqued my intrest as I zoomed in from the basic level. I mean I know all of these things, but its fun to seem them in direct respect to the things they are built around. Your told that an electron compared to the overall size of the atom is comparable to a grain of sand on the earth, but to actually see it is pretty fun. But then I started to zoom out and it entranced me. I can't say exactly what it is about this that pulls my entrance, but once when my mouse slipped to the right I actually felt a sense of vertigo. Ain't that some shit?
