The Scale of the Universe

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!



This is just amazing. I have never been able to appreciate how miniscule we are in the universe, and yet we are a great compilation of even smaller particles. I love how this is presented in a way that doesn't make me drowsy. It took my breath away. Simply astounding.

Even for someone who has taken a cosmology class before, this is quite impressive. It is one thing to see the numbers on the page and quite another to actually get a real sense of the scale of what you're dealing with, and this does that rather well.

thishas taught me so much, and im amazed by everything, like the fact that the size of the observable universe is only about 10% of the predicted universe, and also the fact that you can see a carbon atom if you zoom into HIV enough, pretty amazing, love it!
