That is pretty cool. I've always like the comparison the earth is just a spec of dust compared to the universe. This kind of confirms it.

That's incredibly cool! Wish I'd had access to something like that when I was still teaching science.

It is awe inspiring.

Have this book from Scientific American bought many years ago titled Powers of Ten.
It takes you on a visual tour of what things look like every time you increase or decrease
the magnification by 10. You start from a picture of a person on a blanket in a park next
to Soldiers' field in Chicago measured at one meter square. You move out until you reach
what things would look like of the person at 1 billion light years in steps of 10 times. You
then move in with steps of ten until you reach 0.1 Fermi (that is quite small). This book was
published in 1982 and 1 billion light years is child's play for Hubble or Chandra and the same
is true in the other direction. What has always intrigued me, we seem to live right smack
dab in the middle. Why is that?
