I thought this was pretty cool. It's an interactable Flash image that allows you to put the universe into perspective.

Pretty awesome. Weird though considering I was just having a discussion with some coworkers this afternoon about the universe and the size of it and I come home and see this thread. :)

Awesome post!

I used the Firefox extension called DownloadHelper to rip/grab the FLV file from that link and saved it to my external hard drive. It's only 2.86 MB. I, then, downloaded Adobe's standalone flash player which Adobe calls the "Flash Player Projector." I opened the FLV from the Projector, and I was able to play with the flash file as if it were using the in-browser flash plugin. The Projector (standalone flash player) is 7.9 MB, but it does not install onto your computer; the EXE is the program itself, and it just runs after you double-click on it. The Adobe Flash Projector opens SWF files by default, so you have to select "all files" in order to see your FLV files. If you have Windows 7, you can just type the drive name and path and filename directly, and Windows 7 will guess what file you're trying to open with its dynamic file search algorithm.
