So humble, humble ... part 2

Back in November 2007, I put this post up on my blog which shows the relative sizes of planets and stars. It made me feel quite small and insignificant, it must be said.

But now, the American Museum of Natural History have gone one step further and have produced a short animation showing all of the known universe to scale. It's really quite amazing.


Thanks to Derren Brown for making me aware of it via Twitter.
