Powers of Ten

Powers of Ten is a 1977 IBM-commissioned film taking us on a journey out to the edge of the observable universe before returning to an atom’s nucleus in the hand of a man picnicing in a Chicago park… all within 9 minutes.

Depicting the relative scale of the universe in factors of ten, the film moves by one factor of ten every ten seconds: a great way to look at the power of the log scale and the universe itself.
