|Use the scroll bar or computer mouse wheel to zoom in and out -- from quantum foam to charm quarks to "smallest thing visible to an optical microscope" to the thickness of paper all the way up to Cruithne, the depth of the Mariana Trench, Minecraft World, the Tarantula Nebulam, and beyond. Click on objects to learn more as you zoom from yoctometers (10-35) to yottameters (1027). Metric units appear throughout, with powers of ten in the lower right corner. Also available in Spanish, Dutch, and Hebrew, with an older version in Portuguese.|
