#10 Large-Scale Universe, a domain for astronomy, astrophysics, cosmology and SciFi


At step 158 you’re on approach to the limits of our Solar System: You are just 57 doublings from the human hair. Within another twenty doublings, you’ll see our entire galaxy, the Milky Way (#179). Then, within the next 20 doublings, we are out to the superclusters (#199) and quickly approaching the Observable Universe.

Notes: This Big Board-little universe chart and the Universe Table have many blank lines and summaries. There is a lot of work to do to put everything within the correct notations.


We are quickly at the limits of our own knowledge and often the knowledge of the scientific community. Take, for example, light travel. In just two more notations at 160, we reach the distance light travels in a day, then in a few more doublings, the distance in a week, and in a few more doublings, a light year. And so now, all subsequent distances are measured in light years. Yet, distances have become so great, even traveling at the speed of light just seems too slow to get anywhere! We’ve just started our journey and have a long way to go! And, yes, we’ll need those Einstein-Rosen bridges!

Perhaps you have some ideas! We hope so. That is one of the purposes of this project. Green ArrowPlease take the first survey now. New tours and surveys will be forthcoming.

Notes about Look-and-feel and Navigation: If any of the letters from right column, the Archives  and Meta   are bleeding through the image of the Universe Table, please open your window larger (possibly to full screen). Usually if you click on the last sentence in each description you will go to the next page.

The multiple of the Planck Length at step 158 is is exactly 5.90519726×1012 meters and the distance from the Sun to Pluto is 3.67 billion miles or 5,906,376,272 km.

Step 177 would put you out to the radius of the Milky Way.
