After the commercial you can click on some of the objects to get facts about their size, etc. and then you can zoom in or zoom way out to see just how we fit in relative to the universe. 

Pretty wild to think about.

Leave the dents as they are- let your belongings show their scars as proudly as you do yours.

National Geographic had a huge poster showing the scale of the universe. I printed it at work, about 3' x 5' and it was amazing.

Here it is for sale but I think it can be found for free as a file.
