IdeaLabs: Sizing Up the Universe

If the earth was a golf ball...
(Flash animation)

In this interactive challenge, you guess relative sizes in outer space, and then do the math to check your guesses. (Won't work on iOS devices.) Very good for giving a perspective on the world, the solar system and everything else. A Googlemap plots the relative sizes of objects in relation to your hometown.
