Very cool

I like this version very much. But one thing bother me. Sometimes you can't go near an object to look at (e.g. Distance to the Hubble deep field).

I love the concept, but...

You lost a point due to claiming some neutrino's go faster than light. General scientific consensus: impossibruu!

Yea, yea, the LHC experiment that sent neutrino's to Gran Sasso... The main thing we're trying to find out is what went wrong there. For now at least ;)

The main reasons we don't believe it went faster than the speed of light are:
1) We have experiments confirming their speed to be the speed of light (the '70s supernova if I'm not mistaking?)
2) Violates known physics
3) VERY delicate process, easy to make an unforseen error. And statistical fluctuations due to errors do imply that you'll get impossible results sometimes (like measuring the square of a mass and getting a negative number).

Really good on the large scale!
Few problems with the smaller particles tho.
Size of particles from biggest to smallest: Top, Bottom, Charm, Strange, Down, Up (I believe you got them backwards)... (Source: Wikipedia and http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_M0jx8Outk4Q/TOUUOBQaSaI/AAAAAAAAAFg/yxHs0I89Mrg/s1600/SMMassSize.png)

Great animation and great music! Looking forward to further improvements!

Nice :)

Makes you feel small doesn't it?
