Here is a Web version of the famous Powers of Ten: http://http.bsd.uchicago.edu/visbl/ten/ten.cgi/1 Powers of Ten This site starts with a bird's-eye-view of a man and woman on a picnic blanket in a park. Keep pressing the "Larger" button and you'll zoom out by powers of ten (10 meters, 100 meters, 1000 meters, etc.) away from Earth, out past the Solar System, beyond the Milky Way galaxy and out to the furthest reaches of space as we know it. (The "Smaller" button takes you into the nucleus of the atoms that make up the man's hand...) Based on the famous film and book by Charles and Ray Eames. Also check out these astronomy Web links from the Boston Museum of Science: http://www.mos.org/sln/wtu/index.html http://www.mos.org/mos/planetarium/universe/universe.html Larry
