Five Visualizations to Grasp the Scale of the Universe by Maria Popova What coffee beans, dinosaurs and lakeside picnics have to do with Isaac Asimov and formalized figments. Since yesterday was 10.10.10, we’ve decided to celebrate this cosmic alignment of numerical symmetry by illuminating the measurements of magnitude. Today, we are taking five different looks at one of the most difficult concepts for the human brain to quantify and understand: The size and scale of the universe. Soda Machine Hack Most modern vending machines have little computers inside. A tiny screen usually displays some information. Although relatively little known, pressing a certain combinations of buttons can control the settings. For instance, you can check the internal temperature, view the amount of money inside, empty change, or dump certain beverages.

And trying to find related content can also be difficult, depending on what data you’re looking for. But data visualizations can make all of that much easier, allowing you to see the concepts that you’re learning about in a more interesting, and often more useful manner. Science & Environment - How big is space? Big questions demand big answers. And here at Future we have a hard time thinking of a question bigger than: how big is space? So, we set about trying to illustrate it.

Cell Size and Scale Some cells are visible to the unaided eye The smallest objects that the unaided human eye can see are about 0.1 mm long. That means that under the right conditions, you might be able to see an ameoba proteus, a human egg, and a paramecium without using magnification. A magnifying glass can help you to see them more clearly, but they will still look tiny.

Antes de iniciar el recorrido es posible seleccionar el idioma (dar clic en la opcion Sequel, la cual muestra los idiomas disponibles) de cada ilustracíón correspondiente a la escala que se este observando. Tiene como fondo una base musical suave que no interfiere con lo que se esta estudiando. La página es util para todas las edades y en ‌ las explicaciones manejan terminos cotidianos y también científicos que invitan a investigar más sobre el tema.
