From The Nanoworld to The Universe !

Monday, April 09, 2007

We are able to view all entities, from the microworld to the universe, from a single perspective. By setting them up against a scale, we are able to compare and understand things which cannot be physically compared.

Today, using the electron microscope and astronomical telescope, we can see the objects which we have not been aware of its existence before. Are you able to fathom, or even roughly grasp, these sizes?

This is a beautiful project by Nikon from Japan. All information about the scale and size are made accurate, in a way we can figure it out instantly ^^ with the basic principle of Comparing ;)

We can estimate some range of scale and size just by comparing it with other object :) and Nikon brought this in real nice ! And (my favourite part) it was in Flash ! ^^

The interface are real nice ! Just point and click ! And you get all the information, with real size and scale, and the rendered image is good too :D

Surely this is a must have on your bookmark ;)

Fun + Science :) what could be more fun in learning science like this ? ;)
