  1. Reminds me of one of my favorite science videos- ‘Powers of 10’:

    I thought it rocked pretty hard the first time I saw it in 1989 in Freshman Biology at UCSB. It was 12 years old then (made in 1977)! I wish someone would update it with the latest data and video. Thinking about it now, the latest data hasn’t really extended our knowledge much in the context of this film.

    Hehe, it turns out there is also a site and a Powers of 10 day – October 10 (Har, har!). Mark your calendars!

  2. Actually, Powers of 10 has more or less been updated — video, at least, content not so much. Narrated by Morgan Freeman.

  3. Puts it all into perspective doesn’t it?
