Cool demonstration of the full scale of the Universe

The full scale of the Universe traverses the sizes as small as one Planck Length (hypothetically the size of quantum strings, branes and foam), all the way up to the distance to the farthest galaxies (and a bit beyond).  A project called “The Scale of the Universe 2” by Cary Huang helps put all of ths into perspective.  Differences in sizes between different elements of the world around us is a bit surprizing.  In particular, check out the size comparison between an ant and the largest bacteria.


The web tool doesn’t just show examples at each scale.  It also provides a brief summary or explanation of every object when you click on it.

As a drafter, mechanical designer and CAD engineer, I've been in the mechanical design field since 1991. For the first 8 years of my career, I was an AutoCAD professional. I utilized AutoLISP and many other AutoCAD customization features to streamline drafting activities for 6+ drafters and designers. I authored several custom functions, one of which was published in the March 1997 issue of Cadalyst Magazine. Since 1998, I've been used SolidWorks non-stop. I've worked to utilize the SolidWorks' user environment to simplify drafting and design activities for 20+ engineers. I've created this website to provide current information about SolidWorks from a variety of contributors. More recently, I am now employed by Dassault Systemes as SOLIDWORKS Sr. Product Definition Manager to improve drawing, annotation and MBD related areas.
