Scale of the Universe
Scale of the Universe is an online interactive tool showing the hierarchical structure of the universe, from the smallest subatomic particles to the full universe. It displays schematic representations of natural and man-made objects, living beings and phenomena together with size data. This tool is a great educational resource.
Visit the Scale of the Universe site and click “Play” to start. The slider shows the current scale and lets you change it. Click and drag the blue thumb to interactively change scale by zooming in or out. The atom, person, planet and other icons below the slider give a rough idea of object sizes for coarse scale setting.
