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!

Cool but...

The science in it is kinda bad. No offense.

-the "observable" universe's size is wrong
-no evidence for preons
-no evidence for quantum foam, or fabric in general relativity
-probably more, I didn't really play so much of it

What I like about it-
Most of what I see is accurate, but remember, what you are making people see is science. Anything that is only "partially true" or wrong will skew everything, even the whole game's concept up.
Science isn't being partially right. It's about accuracy.

The song is awesome :)

I like the slide bar thing. Very interesting way to demonstrate the scale of the universe.

I would recommend this game to people who aren't actually studying the accuracy of the things depicted in this flash. This flash would be good for people to open their eyes about how big general things are though.

Thank you for at least "attempting" to make science more interesting and make it for the general public.

This is just...

Seeing this makes me forget about everything. Seriously, my mind just blanks out about everything else when I look at this; all that's left is sheer amazement and wonder as to how the universe is.

Amazing work, by far the most fascinating thing I've ever seen.

There are no words to describe this marvelous piece. As Burek said, this flash does give a feeling of something special. You've basically transferred the feeling of looking into the universe in a small Flash. :) Wow....
