The Florida State University, Tallahassee, Florida has put up a very

interesting Java applet on their site. It begins as a view of the Milky

Way Galaxy viewed from a distance of 10 million light years and then

zooms into towards Earth in powers of ten of distance. 10 million, to one

million, to 100,000 light years and so on and then when it finally

reaches a large Oak tree leaf. But that is not all it zooms into the leaf

until it reaches to the level of the quarks viewed at 100 attometers.

This is a fantastic representation of how magnificent the Universe is

and how vastly infinite it is both in the macroscopic and the

microscopic level.
