The Scale of the Universe

I found this cool website that shows scale really well, originally called The Scale of the Universe.  It is really great for showing students something they can relate to, like the height of a building or the size of the whale, and then getting really big and showing how far apart everything really is in the universe.  It also goes really small to things like gamma rays.  Overall, a neat thing to either show the students or have them explore on their own (perhaps add a worksheet).
