Powers Of Ten

I had a sneaking suspicion that I was insignificant, but this is ridiculous...

"Powers of Ten: A film dealing with the relative size of things in the universe and the effect of adding another zero."

This is a fantastic little film from Charles and Ray Eames (just under nine minutes). I might've viewed this as a young student and then needed about 30 years to appreciate it. Or maybe I didn't see it, but it certainly reminds me of the short movies we watched in science class back in the day. Do you remember the clack-clack-clack of the projector? And the sound of the film finally tearing apart, like it always seemed to do?
