An interactive Flash animation titled “Scale Of The Universe 2“, covering everything in the universe from the fabric of space-time to the estimated size of the universe, was posted earlier this year, and it is awesome.

To get a sense of how cool “Scale Of The Universe 2″ is, check out the YouTube video that shows off the animation: Now, the size of things has been a topic of interest throughout human history, as even the Greek philosophers Democritus imagined such a thing as an atom in 460 B.C. But it was time for the power of the Internet to take over.

Stars & Planets Scale Comparison A Humbling Perspective"Things are not what they seem, nor are they otherwise." This scale comparison shows "the true place" of Earth and our Sun among the various giants of the universe. It is simultaneously sobering and mind-boggling experience.First series of images opens with the Death Star compared to Mimas, one of Saturn's moons. Note the similarities between the two :) Earth is small enough to be swallowed by an average sunspot:(picture credt) Second series of images (from this site) shows the similar progression, now in 3-D: "The Universe is a big place populated by stars and thoroughly confused humans." -- Avi Abrams "We simply do not understand our place in the universe and have not the courage to admit it" -- Barry Lopez (American writer, b.1945) "The universe is like a safe to which there is a combination. "The reduction of the universe to a single being, the expansion of a single being even to God, this is love." -- Victor Hugo (source Ochevidec)Permanent Link...

A Wet Towel In Space Is Not Like A Wet Towel On Earth : Krulwich Wonders... You just don't know (because who's going to tell you?) that when you leave Earth, travel outside its gravitational reach, hundreds and hundreds of everyday things — stuff you've never had to think about — will change. Like ... oh, how about a wet washcloth? Two high school students in Nova Scotia, Kendra Lemke and Meredith Faulkner, asked Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield (who is orbiting the planet right now) what it would be like to dip a washcloth in water (they suggested he clump it into a bottle, then pull it out) and squeeze it. On Earth, a really wet washcloth, squeezed tight, will drip, right? Up on the International Space Station, wet washcloths don't drip. (As a radio guy, I was SO aware of Chris's floating microphone. ... Thanks to Jason Kottke and his blog for noticing this.

Luna Da Wikipedia, l'enciclopedia libera. La Luna è l'unico satellite naturale della Terra. Il suo nome proprio viene talvolta utilizzato, per estensione e con l'iniziale minuscola (una luna), come sinonimo di "satellite naturale" anche per i satelliti di altri pianeti. Il suo simbolo astronomico è una rappresentazione stilizzata della sua fase crescente. La maggior parte della faccia lontana non può essere vista dalla Terra, perché la rivoluzione della Luna attorno alla Terra e la rotazione attorno al suo asse hanno lo stesso periodo, cioè la Luna è in rotazione sincrona con la Terra. Etimologia[modifica | modifica sorgente] Orbita[modifica | modifica sorgente] Nel corso di un'ora si muove nel cielo di una distanza prossima alla sua dimensione apparente, circa mezzo grado. Rotazione[modifica | modifica sorgente] Breve storia della comprensione della Luna[modifica | modifica sorgente] Le dimensioni della Luna rapportate a quelle della Terra.

The Days (And Years) Of Our Lives Looking at the numbers above, you'll immediately notice that you are different ages on the different planets. The earth is in motion. The top-like rotation of the earth on its axis is how we define the day. The revolution of the earth around the sun is how we define the year. We all learn in grade school that the planets move at differing rates around the sun. Why the huge differences in periods? Johannes Kepler Tycho Brahe Kepler briefly worked with the great Danish observational astronomer, Tycho Brahe. Here you see a planet in a very elliptical orbit. Kepler's third law is the one that interests us the most. The Gravity Of The Situation Isaac Newton ©2000 Ron Hipschman
