Rated 5 / 5 stars

I will assume the sizes are correct, an assumption important enough to briefly mention.

One of the things I found most staggering was the fact that just one of our larger virtual worlds, Minecraft, is of comparable size to the actual Earth. I can't quite put my finger on what this implies, but it has something to do with the stupefying nature of our technological growth. The real world is epic in magnitude, and so are the worlds we invent. In my opinion, we play God in many more ways than just biological.

I can only rate this 5/5 for once again being sobering and enlightening to the perspective of things. It is deeply inspiring and interesting, thank you very much.

This is a gigantic improvement over the original "Scale of the Universe" you guys made two years ago. You've made improvements in every dimension (no pun intended).

There's more information to read and learn from. You've made important clarifications to the information (such as the slide on string theory and Planck length.)

The functionality and scrolling is much smoother.

The graphics are prettier and it was an excellent touch to add animations and star blinking.

Overall great job. Would love to see where you take this project next.
