The scale of the Universe.

If you don’t already feel insignificant when thinking about the Universe then you should.

This flash visual guide complete with slider takes you from the very smallest thing we can comprehend to the very limits of human understanding. Or more specifically, from the Planck Length (equal to 1.616252(81)×10−35 meters) a measurement so small that any shorter length makes no physical sense, to the edge of the supposed Universe (1023x 9.6 meters or 98.3 billion light years across its diameter).

Also, there’s a Rubik’s cube in there somewhere. Near humans, I would have thought.
