Powers of Ten by Charles

Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames is a remarkable short film that deals with several aspects of science and mathematics in a quick 8 minute period. It starts out with a picnic on the shore of Lake Michigan in Chicago and zooms out 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 meters. Then the view zooms back in, entering a picnicker’s hand and getting down to smaller than an atomic nucleus. This film is well worth checking out if you can get you hands on it. Your local rental place is unlikely to have it, but you can rent it from Netflix or buy it from Amazon.
