  Universal scale again; art (very) roughsApr 19, 2012 9:30 AM PDT | url
 
Added 1 new A* page:You've probably seen at least one of those online scale demonstrations, where you zoom from human size to very small or very big. Well, a new one this year is (warning: Flash required, music auto-plays after clicking "Start") The Scale of the Universe 2; it isn't radically different from all the others, but it's probably the slickest implementation I've seen so far, and there are a good deal of interesting nebulae and things in there to size up; no supermassive black hole event horizons as far as I've noticed, but you can see that a neutron star--which is kind of what you get if you're just sub-massive enough to miss out on collapsing into a black hole--would just about fit in the state of Rhode Island--although Rhode Island might be a bit worse for wear afterwards.
 
Thanks to my dad for the link! :)

Yeesh! Fortunately his face didn't have to stick that way, thanks to the miracle of white ink. Whew!
