Powers of 10

This fantastic piece of film was made by the office of Charles and Ray Eames,
two of the most renowned designers of the twentieth century.
It is another attempt to demonstrate the scale of the universe,
yet it also includes an added adventure into the very small.
It is definitely worth 9 minutes. I have watched it half a dozen times.


  1. Thanks for sharing that video. Very cool. I love perspective stuff like that!

  2. This is a great video, my astronomy prof at OCCC showed it to us on the first day as well as the pale blue dot video. It made me realize I was going to love that class. Also I just read a short story by arthur clarke that I think you'd like. Its called the nine billion names of god and you can find it here.

  3. Cal,

    That is awesome, man! I will bookmark that Clarke story.
