That is farking awesome.

I wasn't really amazed as I slowly scrolled out until I got to the realization that there are so many stars that couldn't even fit between the earth and the sun.

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour,
That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned,
A sun that is the source of all our power.
The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'.
Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.
It's a hundred thousand light years side to side.
It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick,
But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide.
We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point.
We go 'round every two hundred million years,
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
In this amazing and expanding universe.

The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
In all of the directions it can whizz
As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is.
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth.

Now, THAT was cool!

I figure somewhere in all of those stars, there just HAS to be other intelligent life.

I recommend zooming all the way in/to the left and going slowly out.

I have the strangest sensation of vertigo. That, or it's an epiphany of some kind.

That's pretty cool, good find Subby.

I noticed a parsec in there. Kind of puts Solo's claims that his ship is indeed fast.

Of course there is. It's almost a mathematical impossibility that there isn't. Now are they here probing our anii and the government is covering it up? That's somewhat less probable.

I got that around "The Great Attractor," went to the end and then zoomed back into human size. Big mistake.

A lot of the comments describing things are pretty tongue-in-cheek humorous, too.

1) God DAMN Minecraft is uselessly huge.
2)The total human height is 10 million km? I didn't know they stacked shiat that high.
3) While the scale of the positive powers of 10 is truly breathtaking, it's also fascinating to see how absurdly tiny the building blocks of creation itself are.
4) I am disappointed that the first slide of 10^-35 m didn't have a picture of a dick with the caption "your penis". Or perhaps a tiny violin being played? Oh the possibilities.
5) Conversely, the last slide definitely requires a "your mom" joke.

I'm not sure how I can make sense of any of this if they don't give me a comparison to Rhode Island. I mean, that is just kinda obvious and without the scale of ... oh there it is. Nevermind.

I thought it was always Texas. As in, "Wake President Morgan Freeman and pull Bruce Willis out of retirement, this asteroid is twice the size of Texas!".

"You've never heard of the Millennium Falcon?...It's the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs."
―Han Solo
The Kessel Run was an 18-parsec route used by smugglers to move glitterstim spice from Kessel to an area south of the Si'Klaata Cluster without getting caught by the Imperial ships that were guarding the movement of spice from Kessel's mines.

I love stuff like this. Damn cool.

If you like that, Cosmic Voyage narrated by Morgan Freeman has a similar version using powers of ten.

Sure, I believe Lucas had all that stuff written in his head when he put together his dialogue for Star Wars.

And WTF about midichlorians?

Parsec is a unit of distance, not time. The 12 vs. 18 comment is because Han was able to fly closer to a black hole cluster: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/The_Maw

Yes, God's creation is marvellous indeed. All praise God. He needs constant validation, you know.

You are one of the 2 super nerds I saw arguing outside the movie theater about the exact type of ship in some battle sequence in episode 2. I hid behind a pick up truck and watched you guys go at it, and it was awesome.

Nope, right place right time while going to the movies. They really knew their stuff, and were very passionate about. You just don't see those types of super nerds outside very often, I had to observe them for a few moments.

That is the most ridiculous piece of retconning since ST:TNG "explained" the difference between the turtle-headed Klingons and the gold-lame'-wearing Puerto Rican Klingons of TOS.

Your Mom jokes make the creator of this flash movie sad. Do you tell Your Mom jokes? What's wrong with you? That's not cool! In fact, if your body temperature were the not-coolness of Your Mom jokes, you'd die!
