How about taking a quick trip with me of 10 to the power of 40 zeros. Is this correct? Oh well, who cares?
10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.0 I think I counted correctly.
Now, would you rather listen to the folks who study these kinds of things about the meaning of life, if there is something to answer prayers and who loves us if we follow the rules, or would you rather believe what Adam, Eve, Abraham, Moses, Job, Jesus, Paul, or Luther etc. have to say?
4. The Known Universe expands even further out, showing real data for known objects in our universe.
5. Here on Earth, there are still massive distances to quantify. Tallest Mountain to Deepest Ocean Trench by Karl Tate shows the full range of elevations that humans can get to. To help emphasize the range, the height of the infographic is to scale, accurately portraying relative differences between each elevation.
7. Physical size is not the only quantity that can be hard to conceptualize because of huge scales. Aside from the eye-watering color selection, History of the Earth does a good job of showing the geologic time periods that our planet has gone through from the Cambrian period onward.
8. For even more extreme time scales, Big Bang shows both the time scale and the temperature of the universe as it expanded.
9. Computers have also gone through extreme scale changes in terms of what they can process and store. Global Internet Traffic addresses some of these scale changes.
11. After the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Munroe created the Radiation Dose Chart to show quantity of a completely intangible substance, radiation.
12. Prompted by all the recent economic turmoil, Munroe visualized some of the quantities involved in Money. Both of these charts use a cool technique where the units in each section are defined using the units in the previous section. This produces a logarithmic scale, and it gives a good frame of reference for how huge these values actually are.
