    Wot ever happened to the comparison, or illustration, that every grain of sand at present on this Planet, represents a unit of the Universe or Cosmos as we imagine it? As we continue to make sand on our Planet, so then does the Universe expand? westwind.

    Awesome! And as interesting as all the incredibly big and incredibly small things were, I found the most interesting things near the (human) macroscopic level. Just look at that huge crab!

    Found this on YouTube. Take a look...

    Dimensions comparison of known planets and other heavenly bodies - YouTube

    The animation's wonderful and the effect really emphasizes just how huge some things are, or rather, how small we are. Text is not in English, by the way.
