What an awesome website this is! It is a bit geeky, but it is so brilliant!

It's a Nikon flash presentation and shows the universe in scale, right down to things like carbon nano-tubes and atoms.

Have a go at it.

as a lover of the sciences, e.g., biology, archaelogy, astronomy, geology, and other sciences this is fascinating.

Artaresto, you copycat. Stop following me. Or pay me for posting for you. []

The grey rain-curtain turned all to silver glass and was rolled back, and he beheld white shores and beyond them a far green country under a swift sunrise.

That was a nice site, it's really hard to understand just how huge our universe is.

Here's something related, scale of a few stars and just Sun versus VV Cephei
