The Powers of Ten

As promised in my last post, here is my favorite documentary video of all time. It can be seen in its entirety as this link: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5555313278261147278&q=powers+of+ten The video will start automatically if you click on this link. The video lasts 9 minutes, but it will feel like only a few went by. This video takes you from the edges of the universe to the nucleus of a single atom. Every ten seconds the picture on the screen will take you either 10x closer or 10x further from the specified object. Hillsdale friends may recognize this video from the physics movie nights. I myself saw it in my dorm freshmen year at a Neidfeldt Monday Night Documentary. So Neidfeldt, so good. So enjoy!
