The Scale of the Universe! Wow!

This is a fun Flash animation!!!  Starting from 100meters (1 meter) you can back all the way down to 10-35 meters (0.0000000000000000000000000000000001 meters) and all the way up to1027 meters (10 followed by 26 zeros).  Interestingly, this animation extends beyond our metric prefixes: 10-24 meters is a yoctometer or 1 septillionth (10 trillion trillionths?) of a meter and 1024 meters is 1 yottameter or 1 septillion meters (10 trillion trillion meters).  Waayy out there!
