    A very nice scale relationship program... enjoy. P.S. There is a 747 in it

    That is CRAZY! I looked at that for like 15 min and I am still blown away! I had no idea Halley's Comet was that HUGE! Thanks!
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    Fricken awesome Manny! Definitely puts things into perspective! Was really cool going all the way out to the universe and then holding the mouse button on the "zoom in" end of the scale and speeding all teh way down to the microscopic level.

    Hahaha, Moose, that was funny...

    For me, the biggest surprise was the size relationship of the Neutrino vs. the Planck Length (Quantum Foam/Strings)... wow, that is really really small...

    anyone notice that Boeing's Everett factory is in there too? now, what's a Quark?
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    I saw the words "Boeing 747" but I didn't actually see anything that resembled a 747. *picky*

    Amazing. I also noticed Everett.

    Wow, my head hurts just trying to wrap around all of that. Especially, since I started back up with astronomy, and doing some astrophotography. They look small through the eyepiece but, when you figure in their distance, and see it on that chart................
