Scale of the Universe 2: Help Get some Perspective Today

I found this post on George Stroumboulopoulos’ blog on CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.) George is one of our favorite evening show hosts and focuses his interactions with the most amazing and interesting artists, scientists and social activists. On today’s post, George highlighted an interactive program that helps one navigate the scales of our Universe from the quantum tiny to the Astronomically Huge. There is now a more interactive version of the first Scale of the Universe program that went viral. 

Strombo’s post is below along with the direct link to the interactive scale program
