Powers of Ten

An awesome documentary film that depicts the relative scale of the Universe in factors of ten. The video starts zooming out of our Earth to the cosmos and then travels back to Earth and zooms in to magnify the human cells, to eventually reveal the atoms. This short movie has also been adapted into an interactive website - Powers of Ten.

  11. This is super interesting, but I always wonder on stuff like this. When they start describing thing beyond what has been seen...it's all just a theory. Like religion.
