Powers Of Ten

Understanding the relative scale of things on earth and in the universe is what "Powers Of Ten" is all about. This IBM movie from 1977 is a classic that visualizes in factors of ten starting at a picnic scene and ending on the other side of the universe. Make sure you watch this movie, if only for fun!

Watch the video here. If that does not work: usually you can also find the movie using a MetaCafe search or YouTube search. For more background information read the wikipedia Powers Of Ten page.
