This interactive infographic was created by Number Sleuth, illustrating the scale of the largest and smallest objects within the observable universe. This ranges from super clusters of galaxies to insects and even further down to atoms.
When describing their infographic, Number Sleuth explained:
“While other sites have tried to magnify the universe, no one
else has done so with real photographs and 3D renderings. To
fully capture the awe of the vastly different sizes of the Pillars
of Creation, Andromeda, the sun, elephants and HIV, you
really need to see images, not just illustrations of these items.
Stunningly enough, the Cat’s Eye Nebula is surprising similar
to coated vesicles, showing that even though the nebula is more
than 40,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 times larger, many
things are similar in our universe.”
