    Well. the cure for that is to start at humans and go in the opposite direction of the scale.

    Minecraft World. LOL. Maybe they should have the size of the Enterprise too, or the Death Star.

    I see this is a glass half empty sort of crowd. I prefer to go the other direction and compare myself to how awesome and ginormous I am compared to say....a Neutrino for instance.

    THANK YOU BW! Ive been trying to find this agian. Bookmarked!

    btw Planck's constant is 6.36 (I think) x 10^-34. Thats 34 zeros after the decimal in meters and I still am unsure of what that constant really is. Nothing physically possible can be smaller?? Its used in electricity.. Also Quantum foam is new to me.

    It goes both ways. You can seem very small or very large depending on the way you look at it. Lets take the sun and stars for example...

    Now the Universe itself...

    I fucking love science!

    Seen this some time ago on the escapist, though I already knew I'm completely insignificant in the greater scheme of things.
