The universe deserves perspective, too

My dad sent me a link to the coolest website: The Florida State University's "Molecular Expressions" page. It starts at the outer edges of the Milky Way, and zooms in until you're looking at the tiniest bits of matter.

I'm not a scientist, or even a very logical person. But there's something magical about zooming in and out of the galaxy by powers of 10. Absolutely amazing, and humbling too. Definitely worth the time to click the link.
