A fun little classic little science book It s about the size of things And our units of measurement For adults it hopefully impresses that right sense of scale When you start at 10 26 meters, you can get an idea of how infinitely small you are I want to share this with my child some day.

Just as cool as I remember This book may change the way you look at the world

Can t tell you how many times I saw this film during my grade school years in the 70s Fun nostalgia.

This book has been on my shelf for some time and finally worked through it Powers of Ten is a companion to the 1977 short film of the same name that illustrates the nature of the universe at a different scales of measure by multiplying or dividing the view by ten The scale spans the limits of the known universe for 1977 down to the limits of subatomic measures, while centering around the human level of 1 meter It, like the film, is a rather beautiful and succinct way of showing the power of chan [...]

Really awesome book

This is a coffee table style work with illustrations on every page depicting the range in size of objects in our world from the very large to the very small.Published in 1982 the physics is somewhat dated but is interesting There is a brief discussion of each illustration to give the reader a feeling for the physics involved.

There is a lot to this book, but the crux of it is a progressive series of images taken from the original movie You start way off in space, and the each subsequent image shows an area of 10% the size By the end, you are zooming deep into the nucleus of an atom It blew my mind when I was a little kid, and it still does today I doubt any book could ever hope to capture, in such a simple way, the extent to which modern science has totally transformed our understanding of everyday existence.

Based on the short film of the same name, Powers of Ten takes the reader on a voyage into the biggest and smallest frames of reference we can currently imagine Packed with notes and artwork, this book makes a perfect supplement to a classic, mind blowing short scientific film.

This book was inspired by world famous designers The concept Increasing one s view by powers of ten takes one to the subatomic and universal levels rapidly Zooming out and in Neat But I couldn t make my way through a whole book on the strength of that concept, and returned it to the library early on.

This book starts out with imagery of the universe and slowly backs down by powers of ten to the smallest image available This is an incredible book if you have any interest in science and the universe as we see it.

I wrote a book report for math class on this in high school and in the opening sentence unwittingly used the word astronomical to which my dry hud teacher wrote largely something to the effect of that being a pun, or just rewrote the word largely across the top, exclamation point.

AWESOME book Shows how significant and insignificant we all are

A wonderfully imaginative book, and important to me personally.

This book does a good job of describing the very small in the universe, to the very large It is a bit out of date, but still a very good read.

Classic book about relative size of things It zooms in out from Cosmos to quark Recommend Enjoyed it that I bought its Flip book as gifts for kids.

About the Relative Size of Things in the Universe.Facinating.

All the way in and all the way out in pix turns out they look the same Brilliant idea, endlessly fascinating.

Letto tanti anni fa, mai dimenticato, comprato, riletto, sempre affascinante Per me un classico della scienza.
