Enjoy.

I wish someone would make one of these with better illustrations.

And how little! Its great that the slider goes both ways so you can go micro and macro. Very cool! Made me kind of sad though, and I can't figure out why. Usually seeing the grand scope of things makes me feel good.

That's gotta be the neatest thing I've seen in awhile. I can't believe the largest sun known to humans is 3,000,000,000 km in diameter...the distance from our sun to Jupiter is 780,000,000km!!! AHHHH

You should have warned me about that giant earthworm!!

I will never sleep on the lawn again; the fear of my face being sucked off by one of those creatures!

Very, very cool find. Updates the good, old Powers of Ten video.

Better illustrations? I don't know if I would actually say that, but my own personal opinion is that I do like this one a little better. Both are interesting. This one is just a bit different.

The cool part about the largest known star is that the largest sun we know of is within our own galaxy. We are not looking at stars in other galaxies. We have yet to acquire that type of technology. There are from 125 Billion to 300 Billion galaxies estimated to exist that we know of so far. Just imagine what else lies out there!

That's what sucks about it. All that we can do, is imagine it.

We have to accept that, but it still sucks, and is just not good enough. Regardless of whether I die tomorrow, or if I can somehow manage to continue keeping my blood flowing for another 80 years, chances are, I will die while still not knowing the truth about [color=CFECEC]what is actually out there.

While this was "neat" when it comes to the small particles etc...the depiction of the universe's size in this is (IMO) rather weak and unimpressive.

I dont think it comes close to looking at a "hubble deep field" image which alone shows 5000-8000+/- galaxies in it...and realizing that the 5000-8000 galaxies in the hubble deep field image shows an image/part of the sky which is equal to as if someone would have taken an extremely narrow image from the sky through a "8 foot long soda straw".

See www.cosmiclight.com...

This is truly mind boggling, IMO.

Love this site - going from the smallest thing to the largest and at both ends of the scale you can't truly comprehend them...brilliant.

Seriously, why do these types of threads always receive so many flags? I've seen multiple threads on the picture based version get hundreds of flags, yet for some reason, they rarely get closed. Should I wait a couple more months and remake this thread and get a quick fifty flags or so? I hate to be like this, but I can only post "Wow, that's a cool .swf interpretation." so many times before I lose my mind.

Really makes you wonder how powerful our Creator really is. Anow how weak and pathetic man's works are.

Oh look we can shoot atoms at the speed of light in a 2 mile atom smasher.

Oh look we discovered how to use electricity, thats already here in the sky in the form of lightning.

Cool, we can fly a jet at Mach 12, and keep it a secret to the public....

Then the conclusion of the whole thing is the universe is billions of years old......WRONG CONCLUSION!
More like the Universe is about....6000 years old or just under that 5950-5999 years old. Too bad the scientists don't believe in a Creator or they would see all that and more in eternity.
