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!

All I can say is wow. This is really impressive. Just asking... Did anyone notice the smallest particle a surgical mask could stop was double the size of the largest virus? Doesn't that make everyone feel safe

Puts Everything to scale

Besides the obvious educational benefits of this flash, it also made me think. We're only in the middle, and in a scale with this scope, that's not very high. The universe is so damn big, it just stretches beyond imagination. We can not actually grasp just yet what is out there. We try with science fiction, but can we even come close to the wonders that await us amongst the stars... or the mysteries that lurk in measurements we haven't even created yet as they are so small. Everything has those building blocks to make it stand.

The world is beautiful isn't it?

Simple yet brillant.

I first meet this site few years ago, and even though I'm not american and got only basic english language knowledge, I've, since then, saw dozens of great works here, but this is the only one that motived me enough to register and log in, just so I can say how thankful I am for this unique experience you gave me, a experience I didn't have in an entire life of sciente, physics, chemistry, biology, math and philosophy classes at school. Thank you very much.

Science and education kick ass. Great job on everything--I love the choice of music and I think the simplicity of your graphics make the program very good--easily approached and explored. Great job!
