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!


truly awesome

This is just so well done.
I have seen things along these lines as a video, but the interactivity makes it much better.


Trippy. My perspective has been sucsessfully recaliberized.

I've always wanted to see something like this.

This is awesome beyond words, but there remain a few things that could make this thing even better.

Adding a play button to auto scroll would be nice, but not necessary.

It seems a bit cluttered, but seems reasonable, given the amount of data you wish to present. However, it might be a good idea to arrange the items in a spiral pattern, so it's more clear which object is next up in the size progression. Similarly, you can rearrange some of the text so that they don't become too small by the time you can read the whole thing.

I think you abbreviated nano/micrometer as pm by accident.

What size are you using for the neutrinos? Scattering cross section of some sort?

Once again, thanks for making this.

Very impressive and interesting. Really puts things in perspective.

Talking about feeling small

All those big heads out there should check this out. Make this for iPhone please so more people can realize how small and insignificant they really are.

This game or app has lots of future, you have to continue developing it.
