    I am just getting an empty white box. What is it supposed to do?



    Although I can't see anything on that webpage I am just guessing though that the universe is fairly large????

    It's a 1:1 image of the universe, but it loads at the point representing the South Pole. To see the rest you have to zoom out.

    Cool, But hmmm, if DNA is smaller than a clay particle I don't understand how the human body can work now
    One should say,
    I am not concerned that I have no place, I am concerned how I may fit myself for one.
    I am not concerned that I am not known, I seek to be worthy to be known.

    Thanks Wolty, reminds me of this little bit of awesome video:

    I do not fear death, in view of the fact that I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.

    Thanks for that, Wolty. Made my day.....learned a few new prefixes as well

    Did you manage to read the comments??? Pissed me off and gave me hope, all in the same breath.

    lol, I was trying to find earth and instead ended up moving the slider too far and found subatomic particles instead.

    You may have already seen this, but I just had to share.

    Very. Very. Cool.
