MY TRIP REPORT INDEX
It's a photoshop slide show that takes you from ground level on Earth (looking at some leaves on the lawn in a garden), then zooms out to hundreds of thousands (or was it millions?) of light years away from Earth, one slide at a time, with an explanation of how far you are and what you'd be able to see at that distance.
Then it zooms back to the starting point; then it zooms inward on the leaf until it gets to the sub-atomic level, explaining along the way what we know about each level. It makes one feel rather small in the universe, and it points out how much we still have to learn.
It's a Powerpoint slide show. If you've got iWork on your Mac, then Keynote will open and play it.Originally Posted by Claire, post: 159610

Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the drug store, but that's just peanuts to space.
