Scale of the universe

This is a fantastic scalable graphic.  It puts a lot of things into perspective and to be totally honest opens my eyes as to what is out there size wise.

I had absolutely no idea that there was such a thing as a ‘yoctometer’.  This sliding scale takes things from the very smallest of 0.0000000001 yoctometers.

Rright on up to 93,000,000,000 light years.  Which is what they are saying is the size of the universe.

I know the universe is much larger, but this is the extent of the human possibility to view with even electronic assistance.  That’s why they say it’s that large.  Again, without turning this into a religion posting, I know it’s bigger.

Anywho, take a look, slide through the scale and sit back and relax and enjoy the show.
