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!

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Good with many errors

Strings are not 1 dimensional. They vibrate in 11 dimensions. Not a good explanation for the plank length, should of told something more significant. You have forgotten quarks are bound together with a string, and you have also forgotten antimatter. DNA is much smaller. Your illustration is wrong. By the way, I highly doubt quantum foam is what you have said there, his space-time fabric is not quantum foam. Quantum foam is related to zero-point energy. Excluding that, this is a great gadget, I faved.

I like it

Very nice level of detailed information. Who says flash isn't educational? =]


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Interesting but overrated

if you wanted to create a bigger impact on the viewer then you should have made it to where you zoom INTO an object instead of just having them all together, organized by size. You should have showed a human, well drawn, and then you would have been able to zoom inside of the chest and zoom into an organ, zoom into a red blood cell, zoom into a cell wall, into a virus, into an atom, into a quark, e.t.c. If you zoomed out, you would zoom out of the house, out of the street, out of the neighborhood, out of the city, out of the earth, out of our solar system, e.t.c.

I think it should have also had better detailed graphics, but it was alright. Good job for the daily 1st.

Lots of people find this review helpful!

Thanks for making me feel tiny and insignificant!

I love it. It's Powers of Ten in flash form. Using the menu music from Spore was really fitting. Cliff Martinez is amazing! :P

Amazing, stupendous, marvelous, magnificent, and inspiring! Keep it up. ^_^
