Scale of the Universe: Zoom right in, whizz right out (online app)

Learn.Genetics Size

Learn.Genetics Size

This is what you get when you take the Learn.Genetics Cell Size visualiser and give it beans. Cary and Michael Huang at htwins.net have produced this great tool, which lets you zoom all the way into the smallest sizes and then out into the universe. You can click on each item to learn more.

It can be quite the time-suck as you whizz through inner and outer space.

Have a go!
