     FROM MICRO TO
     MACROCOSMOS
.
This is a trip at high speed,
              jumping distances by factor of 10.
 Start with 100 equivalent to 1 meter, and ...
BON VOYAGE!
10      0
1 meter
Distance
to a bunch
of leaves,
in the
garden
10      1
10 meters

Start our trip
upwards ....
We could see
the foliage.
10       2
100 meters

At this distance
we can see the
limits of the
forest and the
edifications
10       3
   1 km

We will pass
from meters to
kilometers..
Now it is
possible to
jump with a
parachute ...
10       4
 10 km

The city could
be observed
but we really
can not see the
houses
10       5
 100 km
At this height,
the state of
Flórida - USA,
can be seen..
10       6
1.000 km

Typical sight
from a satellite
10       7
 10.000 km

The north
hemisphere of
Earth, and part of
South America
10        8
100.000 km

The Earth
starts
looking
small...
10         9
1 millón de km

The Earth
and the
Moon’s órbit

Órbits of:
Venus and
Earth...
10      12
 1 billón de km

Órbits of:
Mercury,
Venus, Earth,
Mars and
Júpiter.
10       13
10 billons de km

At this height
of our trip, we
could
observe the
Solar System
and the orbits
of the planets
10          14
  100 Billons de km
The Solar
System starts
looking small...
10       15
1 trillón de km
The Sun now is
a small star in
the middle of
thousands of
stars...
10        16
 1 light-year
At one light-year
the little Sun star
is very small
10       17
10 light-year

Here we will see
nothing in the
infinity....
10      18
100 light-years

“Nothing”
Only stars and
Nebulae...
10      19
1,000 light-years

At this distance
we started
travelling the
Via-Láctea
(Milky Way),
our galaxy.
10       20
10,000 light-years

We continued
our travel inside
the Via-Láctea.
10        21
 100,000 light-years

We started
reaching the
periphery of
the Via-Láctea
10       22
 1 millión light-years

At this
tremendous
distance we
could see all the

Via-Láctea &
other galáxies
too...
10 - 10 million light-years
             23
From this distance, all the galaxies

Questions that come to
our minds ...
Who are we?
Where are we going?
From where did we
come from?
10      3


Or... What do we
represent in the
Universe?
10       2
In this trip
“upwards” we went
to the power of 23 of
10
10       1

Now we are going to
dig inside of the
matter in an inverse
trip...
10       0

We arrived at our starting
point.
We could reach it with our
arms...
10      -1
10 Centímeters

Getting closer
at 10 cm ...We
can delineate
the leaves.
10        -2
1 Centímeter
At this distance
it is possible to
observe the
structure
of the leaf.
10      -3
1 Millímeter




 The cellular
 structures start
 showing...
10        -4
100 microns

The cells
can be
defined.

You could
see the
union
between
them.
10        -5
10 microns


Start our trip
inside the
cell...
10        -6
  1 micrón



The nucleus
of the cell is
visible.

Angstroms
Again we changed
the messuring unit
to adapt to the
minúscule size.
You could see the

In this micro
universe the
DNA chain is

 In this

 the electrons
 orbiting the
 atoms.

the electron orbits...
10       -13
100 Fentómeters

At this incredible and
minuscule size we
could observe the

Now we could

nucleous of the
carbon atom

Here we are in the field

imagination, face to

Transcript of "Fantastic Trip"

  1. 1. POWER OF 10 M Z OO FROM MICRO TO MACROCOSMOS .
  2. 2. This is a trip at high speed, jumping distances by factor of 10. Start with 100 equivalent to 1 meter, and increasing sizes by factor of 10s ,or 101 (10 meters), 102 (10x10 = 100 meters, 103 (10x10x10 = 1.000 meters), 104 (10x10x10x10 = 10.000 meters), so on, until the limit of our inmagination in direction to the macrocosmos. Later let’s return, a little faster, up to the point where we started and continue our trip in the opposite direction reducing distances of travel by factors of 10 into the microcosmos. Observe the constancy of the laws of the universe and think about how much the human race still needs to learn...

  67. 67. And now ...Are you the center of the universe? Are you the special creature of the Creatión? What is behind those limits? Are there any limits? Note that going “downwards” we could only go to the power of minus 16ªof 10 and reached the (known?) limits of matter... But upwards we went to the power of 23ª of 10 and stopped... But really we could have continued our trip with out limits to our imagination!!!! ... then? ...who says that we are alone in the universe?
