There is a book of it out there called "Powers of Ten". I saw it on amazon.com for $10, but it is the 6"x4", 152 pages version. I'm pretty sure that the one I saw a while back had much larger dimensions...
"The original concept underlying this tutorial was advanced by Dutch engineer and educator Kees Boeke, who first utilized powers to aid in visualization of large numbers in a 1957 publication entitled "Cosmic View, the Universe in 40 Jumps"."


1 used for $210. 8O But maybe that's the book you saw, it's 48 pages.

Unfortunatly for me I've been loading this applet for almost 20 mins and the bar in it is just going back and forth... nothing has come up yet.

Come join the Ohio forum on AA!

There was a movie a IMAX that had this same concept. Very interesting.

Build a man a fire and he will be warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life.

Ditto... kinda makes you think, were such a small part of the universe, God could have billions of "earth's" out there... what if were just an experiment in the vast universe? Ever watch MIB? lol
