It’s been said that there are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on all the beaches of the Earth. At the same time, there are more water molecules in just ten drops of water than there are stars.
Ranging from the unimaginably small to the unimaginably big, the scale of the universe is mind-boggling. Watch this and wrap your head around it.
What the ????? is a “Pectometer”?????? maybe a “picometer”?????
The picometre (International spelling as used by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures; SI symbol: pm) or picometer (American spelling) is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one trillionth (i.e., 1/1,000,000,000,000) of a metre, which is the SI base unit of length. It can be written in scientific notation as 1×10?12 m, in engineering notation as 1 E?12 m, and is simply 0.000,000,000,001 m.
Just furious at having my screen blocked for so long. No way I would buy your product.
i know your trying to sell stuff. let people choose to buy. they see the add. but to cover the video incites a kind of mean hearted feeling in me and i would on principle never consider buying anything advertised here. . is this what is wanted?
why don’t you cover the entire video and force someone to buy a product in order to see it
I totally agree with Franeche on that the video runs too fast to retain any of the fantastic facts it presents.
It’s bad enough I’m mostly blind to begin with, but the ad or whatever it was blocking the screen made it impossible to watch the video. What a colossal disappointment.
ads are bullshit so stupid to go that way
Stupid having the ad block the screen, definitely would never buy this product and will tell anyone else willing to listen to not buy it or watch your site again.
the ad is too long and the ad on the right is blocking half of the video—
It runs way too fast for me to be able to grasp one object size before comparing to the next one. At the end of the video I feel as if I had not watched it, because I was not able to retain any specific information other than what I already knew.
That is I did not learn anything new.
I believe it could be way more didactic and effective if you at least double the time you give to presenting each fact. The way it is now just overwhelms the watcher… with too much information -too fast!
The ads blocked the view so could not watch the video. When ads are so in your face and intrusive, I boycott them and don’t buy their products. Other than that I enjoy your site and you do so much good work to inform people and raise their consciousness about what’s going on in the world. Well done.
Yes frustrating for you and call
Would it be possible for you to represent the video
I have I phone and I pad andor doesn’t play or load
I’d love to view your work Alexandra
I know the ads are important as they help with cash-flow, but when they cover-up the image you are trying to watch, they have quite the opposite effect. My interest in wellness products has diminished, even though I’m in my 80’s. Sorry guys ‘Fail”.
Yesterday the two ads were blocking the right one third of your video. Today they only block the upper 1/5 of the video window. However, the video does not load after a three minute wait. The window just remains black.
I feel for you Alexandra. The harder you try the worse it gets. Hang in there. We love you and continue to support your work the best we are able.
ruined by the ad couldn’t watch———all the work you did—-wish I could see it
I embedded the Business Insider Flash Player as a test. The picture doesn’t show up as distorted as described on my 11″ MacBook Air, as it apparently is, on Windows OS’.
Lesson Learned: No More Business Insider Flash Players embedded on the
site, going forward.
To the sponsors and FKTV.IS please accept my grateful appreciations for all the scientists, crew, clerk and other personnel that contributed to this 3 minutes segment for our added information related to the distances of things in the universe far ahead and more future information to be discovered.
More power to this program.
Wouldn’t play. A message bar appeared declaring INVALID CONTENT! spread across the video
the stupid ads ruin this presentation and they made me so mad and frustrated that I won’t suggest it to students, nor will I ever buy Karat Bar. What a pain !
When a slimmy politician starts off a statement with,” Here’s the truth “,you can bet your ass it’s a lie.
Neat but this only reinforces our cultures obsession with quantity over quality; that frequently manifests as “bigger is better”.
Most people (except psychos & bankers) recognize that enough is enough” and would choose a cell-phone (structured matter) over a truckload of sand (both consisting of silicon).
Read “Zen & the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” to understand how the wise choose quality over quantity.
This type of information only serves to emphasize how small & unimportant is the individual, when each of us is totally unique; and
perhaps, maximally valued (loved) by another unique person.
Nice one Eddie, bit lacking in the brain cell department are we? Maybe brain cells are made up by scientists as well!
The advt spoiled this seemingly wonderful 3 minute clip. Can you amend? would be appreciated.
A good use of 3 minutes or so. Perspective.
There are no atoms or molecules. These are just terms stupid scientist use to describe something they don’t understand.
Here it is without the ad.
Alexandra, Could you be so kind as to run this once again without the ad covering part of the screen? I wouldn’t want to miss this and I think it must be spectacular. Richard!
Good stuff. Enjoyed it. I’m slightly scientific so I knew some of the measurements. Oh, by the way…Earth ain’t flat. If that were true…we would not spin.
The ad covered the video and was unable to remove it. Bad dog,….bad dog. . .no biscuit for you.
I’ve been following you for a long time. Good stuff!! But thefe was an ad overlay on the presentation that did not go away, nor could I disable it. It ruined the whole show.
Being from the old school this needs to be done in feet and miles. 5280 feet in a mile. I know what a Light year is. Traveling at 186,000 miles a second for one year, 365 days. To a novice this is uncomprehendable. Meters they will never understand. As humans we are so much less than that a grain of sand. Our normal lifetime is really nothing.
your ad covers the right half of your video – can’t even make the video full screen as your ad covers the options.
It is a very interesdting animation; the difficult part, is to extrapolate from the animation to the possibility of this teaching us anything of the truth of that which it speaks!
I have not ever been able to ascertain for myself, whether or not the world is flat or a globe, although I have studied it out, and believe the earth is flat. Thus, the possibility the creator of the animation is either 1/ propagandizing for the heliocentric model; 2/ unaware of the probability the earth is flat, and is therefore unaware all of the animation is based not upon per se fact, but rather is based upon a story line, doubtlessly an old story; however, a story all the same.
