The Scale of the Universe

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!


Very pretty, but...

The animation is very pretty, the music well-chosen. The only problem is that its wrong. You show preons, branes and other things with no experimental basis. Some of the stuff is plainly wrong too - the radius of the observable universe is not light-years, but its given by the Hubble equation. But all in all, very nice. Now, if you show it to some University outreach program they'll love it.

Wheres the Minecraft planet >:(


I'll give this a 10/10 for whatever category it goes on.
But a 7/10 for entertainment.

Most of this stuff I am guessing no one can understand. I didn't learn anything from this as well. Weather that's my fault or not. It just doesn't do it for me.

Either way I don't know why this is the 'best' of all time.

Weird but


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!
