A Matter Of Perspective

Secret Worlds: The Universe Within:

View the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons.

I’ve seen this before, probably at J-Walk.

They also have a Virtual Scanning Electron Microscopy with a cool zoom feature.
