Pretty darn amazing media presentation showing the true scale of our universe - don't forget to use the arrow keys!

Zoom from the edge of the universe to the quantum foam of spacetime and learn the scale of things along the way! Learn the size of the Pillars of Creation and marvel at the minuscule scale of a neutrino!

Nice!

I also like this picture. Makes me feel nice and insignificant.  ^_^

And here's a link to the full resolution (109.99MB) Hubble Ultra Deep Field Image and the Wiki page for those unfamiliar with the image.  :tu:

It makes me wonder what humans will find when they get into their heads to look beyond the light spectrum.

Wow, that was a very good link. Made my head hurt. I want to be God so I can see it all.

I've always liked this video... (probably first saw it somewhere else on this board...If so sorry)
It doesn't go from smallest to largest, but it does show the structure of the web of galaxies that
make up our known universe...  

Remember, what is displayed is less than 2% of the known universe (according to the video) and
each tiny dot of light is an entire galaxy...

Truly amazing. Aw inspiring. And all of it is ONLY as far as Earth can see! Who still says there is no God?

Well, so the universe is ultimately a gigantic pink sponge.

It kind of reminds me of the way brain tissue looks... And the "close-ups" somewhat resemble
the appearance of neurons... To me at least...  :unsure2:

Yeah...it's crazy how small and insignificant we are when you look at how large the universe is, and the video only displayed 1.5% of the whole thing. If the universe could be viewed like a brain...then I guess in size, we wouldn't even be a molecule compared to it as a whole. Yeesh, I feel kind of empty now. Haha

But... as my mother used to say... "In all the vast Universe... there is only one you"
Then - if I had been difficult recently she would add - "And one is quite enough!"...

*If some choose to view God as the creator of the universe that's their personal opinion. However, there are various other forums for religious discussion. Let's all please focus on the scientific aspects of the discussion in these forums. Thank you.*
