Last week, a classic film, Powers of Ten, showed us what it looks like when we zoom out into the universe by factors of ten. Helena sent us that video. Now, Robert directs our attention to videos that move in the extreme opposite direction. They zoom inward, taking us down to the atomic level of things that surround us – a tooth (above), the human eye and the eye of a fly, an everyday piece of plastic, and more. The videos come from John Sizemore’s “Weird Weird Science” collection on Daily Motion. Robert gets the copy of The Omnivore’s Dilemma (kindly donated by Penguin) for sending these along.
