Big Board - little universe

Introduction. In ten quick steps, you will see our universe as we did in five high school geometry classes back on December 19, 2011. On the left is a small image of our very large Big Board-little universe (62×12 inches). We then wanted to present the data in an even more simple format. So, on the right is an image of what we call, the Universe Table (8.5×11 inches). It’s still being developed to be used for mobile apps (smartphones) and work at one’s desk.

If this is your first time here, we appeal to you to take this tour of the universe and then complete a very short  a survey.  Also, because you can come back any time, we would like to challenge you on your first visit, to go through the tour as quickly as possible to get the big picture. Of course, you can take as long as you want. Set your own pace. Come back at any time.

On the bottom right of each page, you will see a green arrow. When you are ready to move on, just click on it. In the bottom left corner of each page, there is a pink arrow. If for any reason you want to go back a page, click on it.

Both charts represent the entire universe ; the smallest measurement is the Planck Length and the largest is the Observable Universe.

Click on either image to go to a much larger view.

This project began when we looked inside a tetrahedron and octahedron and we kept going deeper inside until we reached the smallest possible measurement of length in the universe, the Planck length. Then, to standardize the chart, we started at the Planck Length and multiplied it by 2, and the results by 2, over and over again until we were at the Observable Universe. We were surprised to discover that there were only 202-to-206 notations (or steps, or doublings) to go from the smallest to the largest measurements of a length in this universe. Now, you may find this next statement a bit difficult to believe. We certainly did. Just by a hair, you are right in the middle of the chart! Let’s take a closer look.Green Arrow

Notes about Look-and-feel and Navigation: If the words from right column, i.e. Archives and Meta, are bleeding through the image of the Universe Table, please open your window larger (perhaps full screen ).

To learn more, go behind the scenes. Any of those references will be down here, below the arrows and gray line.:
