Secret Worlds: The Universe Within

I used Audrey's link to Stumble! and found this. Way too amazing!

Secret Worlds: The Universe Within
View the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons.

I love that so much I had to watch it like ten times. Isn't it interesting how a galaxy view from far away can look like a quark viewed from close up?
