only one minor flaw

NGC 4889:
typo :P 'knwon'
aside from that though... this is a fantastically thorough piece of.. well.. everything. I won't lie, as a resident of taiwan, I kind of hoped to see the Taiwan 101. but alas :P

job well done. Should you continue to expand and grow this thing, I would not be surprised if one day you achieve the 'Huang's guide to the Galaxy' as some sort of book for sale XD. Keep adding to this, and you guys have got yourselves the next best encyclopedia.

I was amazed by the first one, and the sequel makes it even better. Seriously, your flash products are a simple, powerful, and incredibly effective learning tool for everyone. Why is this?

- Scale is one of the most difficult things to explain to people!

Even Stephen Hawking has trouble grasping how astronomically large the universe is. Compared to large objects, we know less about small objects. This is because we can see large objects with light. Small objects are so small, that we can't even detect them!

- Fun facts for everyone

I really like this addition. It's something I can show to my nephews. I was clicking through everything just to learn more about it.

- Is really good for all ages!

This flash makes me feel like a kid. It has some really complex stuff, (quarks, string theory, etc), however it's really good for anyone.

Ever since I've seen the first one I've been able to blow peoples minds in regards to scale. "Do you know that if the earth were the size of a person, we would be about the size of cells?"

Neat stuff. I look forward to the next one. I have a bit of a bias, because I'm a bit of a science nerd, however this is seriously a really great flash.
