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!


obvious, but well done

Sorry my fist review here has to contain smartassing, but the radius of the visible universe is not 14 billion ly, it's about 46 billion lightyears (space has been expanding since the fist light began its journey).
Apart from that... very well done. This is so obvious, I wonder why nobody had thought of it before.


Beautiful. The scales are very well done. The size of the Universe can be discussed, but it's very well done. The music of Spore gives it a relaxing point.
5/5 10/10


Very awesome, educational and humbling. I'm all for exercising our conciousness of our own perception, and how we fit into the world we know - like the Greek adage "know thyself" :) Very nice, and beautiful music too. A great reference as well

Very nice.

And to all the fans of highschool philosohpy and "Men In Black" out there: And then it's all just inside of a subatomic particle in another universe.

just amazing

Really shows how small humans are compared to the universe.
