The Universe by 'The Power of Ten' - Video

For those that have not seen the power of ten it is an amazing journey and well worth your time. It really makes one think about our world, the universe and the infinitesimal. 
Powers of Ten takes us on an adventure in magnitudes. Starting at a picnic by the lakeside in Chicago, this famous film transports us to the outer edges of the universe. Every ten seconds we view the starting point from ten times farther out until our own galaxy is visible only a s a speck of light among many others. Returning to Earth with breathtaking speed, we move inward- into the hand of the sleeping picnicker- with ten times more magnification every ten seconds. 

Our journey ends inside a proton of a carbon atom within a DNA molecule in a white blood cell. POWERS OF TEN ©  EAMES OFFICE LLC (Available at
