Very Nice!

I'm amazed on you showing information and sizes. on that way, I felt very small now . Try making this an application on smart phones like iPhone or Samsung and I guess you'll make a profit.. or maybe just making it free.

Simply amazing!

This has to be on of the best experiences I have had on this website. It really opens your mind to how insignificant we really are in the universe. Actually quite humbling. Thank You!

I feel small.

If this doesn't make you feel insignificant and small nothing will...

The Universe

Is so huge yet so tiny!! I was inspired by your first project for my Flash class final assignment. This one is even better! Thanks for sharing!

I love the concept, but...

You lost a point due to claiming some neutrino's go faster than light. General scientific consensus: impossibruu!

Yea, yea, the LHC experiment that sent neutrino's to Gran Sasso... The main thing we're trying to find out is what went wrong there. For now at least ;)

The main reasons we don't believe it went faster than the speed of light are:
1) We have experiments confirming their speed to be the speed of light (the '70s supernova if I'm not mistaking?)
2) Violates known physics
3) VERY delicate process, easy to make an unforseen error. And statistical fluctuations due to errors do imply that you'll get impossible results sometimes (like measuring the square of a mass and getting a negative number).
