The Scale of the Universe

Humans occupy an average middle place in the scheme of things. 
There are vastly bigger entities and vastly smaller ones at the other end. 
Our senses only allow us to see and feel things that are within a few order of magnitudes in size relative to us. 
It is only in the past 200 years or less that we have been able to comprehend the vastness of space and that is where the wonderful website HTWINS gives us a glimpse of what lies beyond our limited perception.

HTWINS is wonderfully presented and graphically describes the enormous range of objects in our Universe.The only way to appreciate it is to open the link and play with it for a few minutes.

It is almost impossible not to be impressed by it. ENJOY!
