Scale of the Universe by Cary and Michael Huang

In the 1950’s many scientists find it fascinating when many people got interested about the facts regarding the scale of the universe. The idea started to go out from the box when a Dutch reformer of education wrote an interesting essay, “Cosmic View: The Universe in Forty Jumps”.

This essay presented 40 orders of magnitude between the nucleus of sodium atom and the universe that is observable by some sort of mathematical measurement. Because of that essay, many are persuaded to create a film out of this topic which was started by a Canadian producer who created the “Cosmic Zoom” which was followed by Charles and Ray Eames’ “Power of Ten”.



If we look closer on today’s discovery, less and less people are getting interested in the scale of the universe.

But earlier in 2012, a very astonishing presentation of the scale of the universe flabbergasted so many experts and scientists due to its mind-blowing technicalities.

14-year-old twins namely Cary Huang and Michael Huang created a Scale of the Universe in just a span of 1 year and a half not for the sake of making a school project but only for fun. It was the interest of these twins from their seventh grade teacher when they get attached on creating a scale that is related to the presentation of the body cells in their science class.



If you visit this site: http://htwins.net/scale2/, or use the flash above, scroll right and click start, you will experience a marvelous interactive flash animation called “Scale of the Universe 2”. This work of science and art presents everything that can be found in the universe ranging from the smallest object up to the largest estimated size of the universe.

This animation is totally awesome since all you have to do is to scroll your mouse and you will feel like travelling from one subject to another, passing one galaxy to another until you reach the bonding and individualism of atoms, molecules and the likes. Anyone can visit and see the animation. Whether you are a science geek or just an ordinary person, you will certainly love what those twins did to the scale.

Because of this, many people start to interest the amazing idea about the scale of the universe.

Even long before we lived, philosophers and scholars are already arguing about this subject and many theories are being made connecting the elements of the universe to our day to day basis.



If you look closely to the animation found on that website, you can prove how amazing our modern technology is by providing us a clearer and easy to understand view about complexities in our universe that most of us can never explain.

Aside from the “Scale of the Universe 2”, the website also presents other pages such as the video of the animation, simulation of other science related facts and other fun things that is fancy to the eyes but interesting to the brain. You can choose some of those great things at the website’s homepage at http://htwins.net/.

The acclaim of this masterpiece somehow made us realize that great and interesting things may come from small hands.
