Amazing Animation is a Bit Like Google Earth, for the Universe

An amazing animation by Cary and Michael Hwang allows you to have a look at the universe, to scale. You can zoom in and out from the sub-microscopic level to the whole of the visible universe and an estimated look at the whole universe. Sadly you can't pick other galaxies and solar systems and zoom in to have a look at the planets, but you can click on things as they zoom past and get descriptions of what you are looking at. Visit htwins.net/scale2 and start playing. [Via Popular Science]
