The coolest "scale of the universe" presentation ever

Recommended Posts

It's hand drawn with flash but it's more complete and interesting than other ones I've seen. you can quickly zoom between the relative size of a dna strand and a 7 meter long earthworm, and it's got a chill ambient track too. oh and it's pronounced YER uh niss apparently.

the thing is though... you're (er, semi-) infinitely bigger than just as much in a way so it evens itself out.

I like how the US (and presumably also Canada) is wider than the moon.
