That is the craziest display of size ever.
It is great because its interactive and you can move the slider.

Really makes me understand how things are the way they are.

Thanks for posting !

I know right? The slider is really amazing.


Have you ever seen how DNA replicates? What drives its process? It is amazing.

Too flipping cool!!


If only they had something like this when I was in school. Not only would it have had me stoked to wanting to learn, but I would have understood the scale in such an easy way.

Very very nice!

Yikes
that most certainly puts things into perspective, eh?

The human body never ceases to amaze me, it's truly a fascinating thing indeed

Here's a very nice animation about the inner workings of a cell, called "BioVisions: The Inner Life of the Cell":



It really is another microscopic Universe, and a fascinating one, too.

What a wonderful world...

WOW that was great, thanks, never thought about the actual scale of these things before. I always knew they were small, but in relation other things you never put them together and it is surprising. Cheers

Wow, I never knew cells functioned in such a sophisticated manner. That's definitely a mind blowing video. After putting things to scale and then witnessing the inner workings (or a animation simulating) of a cell my mind is boggled.

Nikons website regarding the scale of the universe. Stumbled upon this after surfing the web on my free time. Pretty interesting.

In theory, any matter, regardless of size can always be split in half.
So, theoretically, infinity exists, there is no ~smallest~.

Hey, I saw Phage in there! Wonder if he knows he's that small?

Unlike most things here on ATS, this makes me feel really big

Amazing - they should do one from the carbon atom to the entire universe.

It shows just how small the rhinovirus is - less than 100 carbon atoms across! And it (sort of) qualifies as life.

Great finds!!

It reminds me of the ending in Men in Black when it zooms out the the 2 Aliens playing marbles.....!

One of the coolest things I've seen.
makes me wonder if there is anything smaller than a photon and is there anything bigger than our universe?

Is there any theories about those anywhere?
I'm finding all this really interesting.
