The Scale of the Universe

Thanks to Thierry for pointing out this neat site to me:


It’s a very clever Flash animation comparing the sizes of everything from the quantum foam to the entire universe.  It gives a nice sense of perspective.  Cool music, too.

    Thank you noreligion the video are nice too (^_^)/
    I really can not imagine the size of the bigest star… it’s almost impossible to conceptualize (in my mind) such a thing.

    Noreligion… what a weird name, in a good way, i’m an agnostic by principle when it comes to the concept of a/something “creator”, and of course an atheist when it comes to any religion clearly man made… i’m checking your site now !lol!

    New grounds is pretty fun isn’t it? It’s one of my favorite sites. I’m a sucker for animation. This particular animation is really cool! I’m not going to pretend I understand it all (lol), but the detail is so intricate and over my comprehension, that it’s wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
