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!

Weird but



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Interesting but overrated

if you wanted to create a bigger impact on the viewer then you should have made it to where you zoom INTO an object instead of just having them all together, organized by size. You should have showed a human, well drawn, and then you would have been able to zoom inside of the chest and zoom into an organ, zoom into a red blood cell, zoom into a cell wall, into a virus, into an atom, into a quark, e.t.c. If you zoomed out, you would zoom out of the house, out of the street, out of the neighborhood, out of the city, out of the earth, out of our solar system, e.t.c.

I think it should have also had better detailed graphics, but it was alright. Good job for the daily 1st.

Lots of people find this review helpful!

Nice, but some basic math errors

Like Alpha Centauri C is placed closer to the Earth than the sun. (It's a math error -- you used km instead of Mm).

Very Nice

great work; blew my mind

Although this interactive piece could benefit from a graphical overhaul, you've developed an interesting mechanic and successfully presented a mystical concept in such a way that it can be easily grasped (as firmly as it can be, at least.)
