The Scale of the Universe 2

The Scale of the Universe created by Cary and Michael Huang

I’m a fan of infographics and love seeing those that are well done.

Scale of the Universe “will take you from the very smallest features postulated by scientists (the strings in string theory) to the very largest (the observable universe.)”

Hit “start” and begin exploring. Using the slider at the bottom of the graphic enables you to zoom through the universe. Clicking on objects in the animation provides  more information — often with a sense of humor.

Amazing and humbling. Even more impressive is that this animation was created by 14-year-old Cary Huang with technical help from his twin brother Michael. To learn more about these incredible teens and their work, visit or their website.

    Thanks for finding this. Wow, are we insignificant dust particles or what?
    Great perspective and truly well done.
    A 14 year old?
