The Scale of the Universe

Share Collapse

Author Comments

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!

ARROW KEYS! ARROW KEYS! You can use arrow keys if the scroll bar is too sensitive.

Thank you so much for your high ratings and rave reviews!


one thing that would be very awesome would be an indicator as to when the scale is 1:1
like the point on the scale where i see the things on my screen as big as they actually are
i dont know if that would be possible considering different resolutions on different monitors and devices but that would help put things into perspective

Now my doubts are clear

u r so small

I remember logging on to Newgrounds as a kid, around 9 or 10, and finding this. Even now, years later, it still blows my mind. And it gives me headaches when I try to comprehend how small a human is compared to these objects in space. Wow.

A new classic. It's honestly a very beautiful experience to scroll from the size of an ant to the size of a dwarf star in such a seamless manner. Job well done.
