If anybody gets a chance go see the 'Hubble Telescope In 3D' at an Imax cinema. Truly jaw dropping journey towards these stars and because of the screen size it helps boggle one's mind, add to that the 3D effects giving sensory depth to the questions and it adds real depth to the macro side of the OP.

... its unreal how big it is...


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.


I think you realized how small you actually are in comparison to what you had previously thought.

Anyone notice that the smallest size particle that a surgical mask blocs is larger than the largest virus?

That sounds truly cool. Are there a homepage where I can check where it will be shown around the world?

Thanks,

That was amazing. The design of it all it amazing. I like how the very end says that we are probably not the center of the universe, yet by size, we are smack in the middle. I wonder if a cell in our bodies, given the same view of the body as a whole, would miss the significance of each part to the purpose of the entire human body universe? Another thing that jumps right out at me: From beginning to end, there are no empty spaces or voids. Every square centimeter has something filling it.

According to the folks over at Space.com and NASA, we recently discovered that our measurements were off. Our overall universe is 15% larger than previously thought.

Universe Might be Bigger and Older than Expected

Scientists now estimate the universe to be about 13.7 billion years old (a figure that has seemed firm since 2003, based on measurements of radiation leftover from the Big Bang) and about 156 billion light-years wide.

Flash interactive placed the universe's size at 93,000,000,000.
New discovery by scientists places the universe's size at 156,000,000,000.
(Discovered in 2006)

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.

You think the universe is 6000 years old?
I suppose you think the Earth is flat as well.

Threads like this are why I keep coming back to this site. Amidst all the NWO and 2012 stuff, there are some great gems of scientific knowledge and discovery. Great find OP!

I feel realy sorry for people such as yourself and your brain washed theorys. Religion has tried to convince you of these facts that you state, man controlling man. You only have to look at the link to realise that all that is out there took a massive amount of time to create, 6000 years lol. There is hard physicle evidence of cultures older than that on our own planet, the buildings are still there.

Im afraid your shepard has failed you, wake up please.

Hey, is that a slice of layer cake?

I beg to differ. It's a pretty shoddy attempt at an augmented reality simulation. It's a safe bet that other intelligences have done it bigger and better. By comparison our creator is pretty inept.
His creation is an imperfect design and an imperfect reality, that is well overdue for major improvements. So when can we expect service pack 1, that will hopefully fix the numerous bugs and flaws around here. An improvement in the plot and story line wouldn't go amiss either.
