Scale of the Universe

Something I really miss living in a big city (Paris) is that I almost never get to see the stars anymore.  Some of my best memories in university were going out for walks at 3AM and just laying around in a field, looking up at the stars and being humbled by a sense of awe at the scale of ‘everything out there’.  Chris Gammell posted a link to scaleoftheuniverse.com on twitter, and when I had a look it reminded me exactly what’s so amazing about the world we live in, and everything around, in, and above us.  Great to be reminded to look up … and down … from time to time.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Maybe you’re too young to remember this: http://www.powersof10.com/film

  2. Marty: While I was all of two years old when that was made, it’s definately a classic. Thanks for the heads up on the link.

  3. The screenshot shows micrometer but uses the abbreviated form of picometer (pm), what’s going on there?
