power of 10

power of 10 java applet

Yesterday near Federation Square (Melbourne) I saw the Eames display of the power of 10. It's a series of posters that take you from looking at galaxies from a distance at one end (10^23 metres) to a representation of quarks at the other end (10^-16).

Each picture is actually an image of something that is 10 times bigger or smaller than the one preceding or following it.
