The Scale of the Universe

"Looking up into the night sky is looking into infinity — distance is incomprehensible and therefore meaningless." - Douglas Adams

If this isn’t the most amazing thing you look at today, then I don’t know what to tell you. (And I’m not talking about the picture above. I’m talking about what’s through the link below, smartass.)

It’s a sliding scale of the known, visible universe. Click it and play. You won’t be sorry.

Let it load. Click start. Scroll.

Mind. Blown.

Credit to Aaron Dunn for pointing it out to me on 4Chan and Cary & Michael Huang ( for creating it.  Do check out the rest of their stuff.  It’s pretty amazing, in general. Lots to look at.

Happy Weekend!
