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!

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?

Awesomes. :D

Pretty interesting, I now quote information from here to sound clever.

I mean, who knew that Pluto was smaller than the moon? Or that 10^-35M was the smallest measurement ever? Not me.

You should definitely do some other science-y thing like this.

Pretty intriguing movie you put together. It was very interesting to see in scale of how big and small our universe truly is. The music is pretty relaxing and works well. The graphics were simple, could us a little more detail, but it's fine. I really like how you put the information together. It was a fascinating way to line up the smallest bit of matter to the largest thing fathomable; pretty eye-opening. Overall pretty good flash you made. Good work!

This isn't exactly a game but if you didn't just google this is VERY impressive. The music from Spore is a nice touch as well.
