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!

Perfect

Simply outstanding.



Beautiful

That was incredible! A perspective of the universe put into this simple, yet absolutely amazing small-large scale imagery system. You did a really great job on this!

OmNomNom, Quantum Foam :D



Absolutely brilliant

Looks great, and packed with great information. It's incredible how this has all been pulled together so creatively! Fantastic stuff. I've just finished reading Michio Kaku's Physics of teh Impossible and it's cool to see Neutrinos and Space Foam on scale.

P.s. - the scrambled rubiks cube you've drawn, mid-slider cannot exist - although there are indeed 9 orange squares, 6 of these sit in the middle of an edge (when the maximum can be 4). No matter how many times you twist a rubiks cube, the corners will never become middle edges.



WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THIS IS SERIOUSLY EDUCATIONAL!!! YOU WROTE EVERYTHING FROM THE SMALLEST SUB-ATOMIC PARTICLE TO US HUMANS AND TO THE VERY KNOWN ESTIMATED UNIVERSE!!!! I WAS ABOUT TO BURST INTO TEARS CAUSE YOU DID SO MUCH WORK AND IT PUTS ME TO SHAME!!!!
