Behold the magnitude of the Universe with this awesome Flash app

Ready to see something fun? What I have for you is an interactive animation that lets you see how different things compare in size. It may not sound like much, but this one goes from the tiniest bits that compose our universe all the way to the solar systems and galaxies.

If you ever wondered how the Giza Pyramids compare in size to the Statue of Liberty, now is your chance to find out. Just be careful – zooming too far out might make you feel really insignificant.

The animation is created by Cary and Michael Huang and you may find it by following this link. Just don’t forget to come back after that and tell us what your favorite part was.
