I like this viddy from the American Musuem of Natural History, which I found on Balloon Juice (posted by Anne Laurie). It makes me feel small, in a good way. But it also brought to mind the 1968 short film Powers of Ten, by Charles and Ray Eames. The Eames film created the zoom out, zoom in trope that this and many other similar viddies borrow.

(The Eames 1977 update of their 1968 original)

If you know anything about the Eames at all, you know them by their chairs. If you don’t know who Charles and Ray Eames are, you should.

“Eventually, everything connects.”
