In case you missed it last week (when this short doc was celebrated on 10/10/10) check out The Powers Of Ten movie below. Even though it was made in 1968 by Charles and Ray Eames it is still very much up-to-date and is still as powerful as it was 40 years ago.
…It reminds me greatly of Carl Sagan‘s Pale Blue Dot…
Synopsis: Powers of Ten takes us on an adventure in magnitudes. Starting at a picnic by the lakeside in Chicago, this famous film transports us to the outer edges of the universe. Every ten seconds we view the starting point from ten times farther out until our own galaxy is visible only a s a speck of light among many others. Returning to Earth with breathtaking speed, we move inward- into the hand of the sleeping picnicker- with ten times more magnification every ten seconds. Our journey ends inside a proton of a carbon atom within a DNA molecule in a white blood cell.
