The Scale of the Universe

I don’t think I’ve posted this one yet.  It’s pretty darned awesome: an interactive flash animation that lets you scale through the Universe at different resolutions, by powers of 10.  Talk about wonder at every conceivable scale.  😉  Click the link, and get ready to be immersed in amazing things.  It’s really mesmerizing, and the music is beautiful.

EDIT: I almost forgot to mention this.  Make sure you click on the objects; it’ll tell you a little bit about each one.  Very nice educational tool, as well as pleasant relaxation toy.
