As a convenience, I have gathered together all of my
links to external sites. The links are arranged by power
of ten, from the small end to the large. I have further
grouped the sites by the field of science that seems
most appropriate. Enjoy!
Particle physics (10-16 to
Chemistry (10-10 to 10-7
Microbiology (10-6 to 10-3
Biology (10-2 to 103
Geology (104 to 107
Planetary exploration (108
to 1016 m)
Astronomy (1017 to 1023
Cosmology (1024 to 1025
Other Sites Dealing with the Concept of Powers of Ten
- The entire essay "Cosmic
View" by Kees Boeke written in 1957. There is
another copy at vendian.org.
- The Microscopy
at FSU site contains a Java movie. Check this
out. The focus of this sequence is Tallahassee,
- Mitchell Charity has a wonderful site devoted to
astronomy and science in general. "A View from the
Back of an Envelope" has been around for a long time
-- an excellent resource. "How Big are
Things?" uses a unique approach to the powers of
ten concept. Go there and browse.
- Richard Powell's "An Atlas of
the Universe" starts with the Sun's local
neighborhood, accurately and artfully displaying our
place in the Universe in 9 progressively larger views.
