Which is better? I am not saying about the  age-old visual quality or the Morgan Freeman’s low sound quality, but about the clarity of  explanation. I prefer the latter.

If you want the mind blowing experience of How BIG is Big and How SMALL is small,  then just visit this one, it’s the updated version.

P.S: Sometimes I ask myself : What are you doing here?

  1. I agree with you, the first one is slicker in its presentation but the second does a better job with understanding the scale of things.

  2. I knew I would enjoy this based on it’s title alone, and I wasn’t wrong! I agree the second video offers a clearer explanation. The Scale of The Universe 2 you offered in your link is AMAZING. I also posted it a couple of weeks ago and still spend WAY too much time playing around with it.

  3. Thanks Alex . I had to find your post and here it is http://alexautindotcom.wordpress.com/2012/03/04/the-scale-of-the-universe-2/ I thought others could have a read too.

    And thanks to you too Michael.
