    OMG.. that is SO cool Hoolahan. I saw the SE part of Florida (it went too fast to remember the towns).

    The electron level scope went alll the way to magnifying quarks!? I do not remember those from biology but they are sure cool.

    Thanks for sharing.. this is way cool.. everyone should take a peak!

    This is what blows my mind about that "Powers of 10" website:

    ...compare the size of the Earth to the size of a plant cell, which is a trillion times smaller:

    Earth = 12.76 x 10+6 = 12,760,000 meters wide
    (12.76 million meters)

    Plant Cell = 12.76 x 10-6 = 0.00001276 meters wide
    (12.76 millionths of a meter)


    Whoa! Absolutely astonishing!

    That was cool!!!! I love science!!!

    Geeze, kids these days have it easy.

    When I was a kid we didn't have fancy imaging and computer programs. We had to "imagine" and "visualize" and we only had plastic models to work with to figure out chemical compostion and proton and neutrons.

    We didn't even have quarks!
