Abstract:

In this 1977 movie by Charles & Ray Eames, called "The Powers of Ten", they demonstrate scaling in powers of 10 meters. It covers from the horizon distance down to the scale of quarks and is about 10 minute long. For a truly modern twist on this scaling, check out this 2012 version "Scale of the Universe 2", by Cary Huang.
