Scales of the Universe

A colleague of mine, Jude Kastens at the Kansas Biological Survey, forwarded this link to me:

Scales of the Universe — http://htwins.net/scale2/scale2.swf?bordercolor=white&fb_source=message

This site is WAY COOL!  How big is a string?  How big is a nebula? How big is a beach ball?  You can zoom your way from from 10^-35 meters to 10^27 meters in a Limitless meets Contact sort of google earthy experience.

I wish I had seen this earlier in the year!
