Powers of Ten™ (1977)

Powers of Ten takes us on an adventure in magnitudes.

Starting at a picnic by the lakeside in Chicago, this famous film transports us
to the outer edges of the universe.

Every ten seconds we view the starting point from ten times farther out
until our own galaxy is visible only a s a speck of light among many others.

Returning to Earth with breathtaking speed, we move inward- into the hand
of the sleeping picnicker- with ten times more magnification every ten seconds. 

Our journey ends inside a proton of a carbon atom within a DNA molecule
in a white blood cell.
