Visualising Scale

Following on from yesterday’s Scale of the Universe 2, we have a brilliant video showing the Powers of Ten, created in 1977 by Eames Office.

Visual.ly blog has a list of “12 Visualizations That Will Change the Way You View Scale in Your World“. The above video and the Scale of the Universe 2 are there, and the other 10 are equally amazing. The final image on Money by xkcd is fantastic, and should be viewed alongside the US debt visualised in $100 bills, and the MegaPenny Project.

The power of Powers of Ten. Onwards!
