Thanks to Jebel for this one. I'm seeing starship battles about a red hyper-giant.

I like that, very well done. It reminded me of this "The powers of ten"

Has a sliding scale so that you can see how bug things are from the quantum foam all the way up the the whole universe. Cannot recommend it more.

Nice one Phil M! It is pretty mind blowing to think of the size of some things, the biggest galaxy known is 5 million ly accross! 50 times bigger than the milky way, and i thought that was big!

Just shared that with my 7 year old, who disagrees with it vehemently, and he's right.. he's the centre of my universe.
