relative sizes

i never get tired of visual effects used to showcase the relative sizes of planets and stars.




the music is Rubber Bullet by stakka and K Tee. i found the video from digg via neat-o-rama.

if you like this, check out the powers of ten video by the eames, played to the galaxy song by monty python: HERE.

or see how hurricanes relate to spiral galaxies and brain cells relate to large scale structure in the universe!

Oh very nice.

"Small blue dot" is about right, although you'd need a powerful magnifying glass to see it. =8O

Very nice, the music too. You know, 'Pluto' looks suspiciously like Ganymede ...

Cool video! Too bad I can't even see Earth because Antares was waay to big.
