    77?!? I knew NASA had fallen behind, but not that far behind.

    I love stuff like this! :razz: Thanks for sharing! Really gets your brain cells thinking about things... and it only illustrates the visible universe! :shock: The graphics/flash is also witty and whimsical as well.
    *can you imagine if they could depict the "black cloud of despair" -- you know, that phenomenon when you didn't get that grail toy that just came out! :x :x :x That "conceptual" object would envelope the visible and invisible universal elements! :roll: :D

    Powers of Ten changed my life. Eames Office :)

    They tried to make another version a few years ago narrated by Morgan Freeman called Cosmic Voyage. It's neat, but not PoT.



    Oh and that interactive infographic is not by NASA (and is actually a few years old too).

    After taking this all in (and taking into account the news of the past few days - Kepler!), it's always fun to play with this:
