http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/primer/java/scienceopticsu/powersof10/

This tutorial will let you 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.

Each month Marjan Glavac, professional speaker, teacher and co-author of “How To Thrive And Survive In Your Classroom”, presents The Busy Educator’s Monthly Five – five websites for educators that are easy to read, simple to use and worthwhile to know.
