The Scale of the Universe

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!

People find this review helpful!

Since the log scale is continuous, it allows to visualize the relation between sizes. And it does a good job as it goes from smallest to biggest adding useful info along the way.
Notable pros:
resolution scales
Lower Bar Puts orders of magnitude for scale, very nice.
-zoom lock to be able to look around.
-animations as option (galaxys move, bacteria move)
