Cell size and scale

A web app from the University of Utah, reminiscent of the Eames' Powers of 10 movie. It covers microscale but not macroscale. Any web apps that cover the opposite?

This is my favourite of the genre: http://xkcd.com/271/
The beginning of the movie "Contact" impressed me much when I saw it, and still does when I think of it.

This YouTube video is pretty cool:

The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world's most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History. The new film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010.
