Powers of Ten Flipbook

  • Based on the film by Charles and Ray Eames

    This is the perfect gift for the budding scientist or eco-warrior in your life.

    An adaptation of the classic 1968 documentary, Powers of Ten: A Flipbook, is a visual journey exploring the relative size of things in the universe and the effect of adding another zero. Travel from the edge of the universe to an atom in the hand of a sleeping man at a picnic. The effect is a spectacular cosmic adventure that involves astronomy, biology, particle physics and much more. From the Milky Way to a tiny proton, this extraordinary book illustrates the relative size of things in the known universe and our place in it.
