Presentation on theme: ". ZOOM ZOOM POWER OF 10 FROM MICRO TO MACROCOSMOS."— Presentation transcript:



3 This is a trip at high speed, jumping distances by factor of 10. Start with 10 0 equivalent to 1 meter, and increasing sizes by factor of 10s,or 10 1 (10 meters), 10 2 (10x10 = 100 meters, 10 3 (10x10x10 = meters), 10 4 (10x10x10x10 = meters), so on, until the limit of our imagination in direction to the macrocosmos. Later lets return, a little faster, up to the point where we started and continue our trip in the opposite direction reducing distances of travel by factors of 10 into the microcosmos. Observe the constancy of the laws of the universe and think about how much the human race still needs to learn...


5 Distance to a bunch of leaves, in the garden meter

6 Start our trip upwards.... We could see the foliage meters

7 At this distance we can see the limits of the forest and the buildings meters

8 We will pass from meters to kilometers.. Now it is possible to jump with a parachute km

9 The city could be observed but we really cannot see the houses km

10 At this height, the state of Florida - USA, can be seen km

11 Typical sight from a satellite km

12 The north hemisphere of Earth, and part of South America km

13 The Earth starts looking small km

14 The Earth and the Moons orbit in white million km

15 Part of the Earths Orbit in blue million km

16 million km Orbits of: Venus and Earth...

17 Orbits of: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars and Jupiter billion km

18 At this height of our trip, we could observe the Solar System and the orbits of the planets billion km

19 billion km The Solar System starts looking small...

20 The Sun now is a small star in the middle of thousands of stars trillion km

21 At one light-year the little Sun star is very small light-year

22 Here we will see nothing in the infinity light-years

23 Nothing Only stars and Nebulae light-years

24 ,000 light-years At this distance we started travelling the Milky Way, our galaxy.

25 We continued our travel inside the Milky Way ,000 light-years

26 We started reaching the periphery of the Milky Way ,000 light-years

27 At this tremendous distance we could see all the Milky Way & other galáxies too million light-years

28 From this distance, all the galaxies look small with immense empty spaces in between. The same laws are ruling all bodies of the Universe. We could continue traveling upwards with our imagination, but now we will return home quickly million light-years

45 10 6

46 10 5

47 10 4 Questions that come to our minds... Who are we? Where are we going? From where did we come from?

48 10 3 Or... What do we represent in the Universe?

49 10 2 In this trip upwards we went to the power of 23 of 10

50 10 1 Now we are going to dig inside of the matter in an inverse trip...

51 We arrived at our starting point. We could reach it with our arms

52 Getting closer at 10 cm...We can delineate the leaves Centímeters

53 At this distance it is possible to observe the structure of the leaf Centímeter

54 The cellular structures start showing Millímeter

55 The cells can be defined. You could see the union between them microns

56 Start our trip inside the cell microns

57 The nucleus of the cell is visible micron

58 Again we changed the messuring unit to adapt to the minuscule size. You could see the chromosomes Angstroms

59 In this micro universe the DNA chain is visible Angstroms

60 ...the chromosome blocks can be studied Angstroms

61 It appears like clouds of electrons... These are carbon átoms that formed our world. You could notice the resemblance of the microcosmos with the macrocosmos Angstrom

62 In this miniature world we could observe the electrons orbiting the atoms picometers

63 An immense empty space between the nucleous and the electron orbits Picometer

64 At this incredible and minuscule size we could observe the nucleous of the atom Fentometers

65 Now we could observe the nucleous of the carbon atom Fentometers

66 Here we are in the field of the scientific imagination, face to face with a proton Fentometer

67 Examine the quark partícules There is nowhere more to go... At the limits of current scientific knowledge. This is the limit of matter Atometers

68 And now...Are you the center of the universe? Are you the special creature of the Creation? What is behind those limits? Are there any limits? Note that going downwards we could only go to the power of minus 16ªof 10 and reached the (known?) limits of matter... But upwards we went to the power of 23ª of 10 and stopped... But really we could have continued our trip with out limits to our imagination!!!!... then?...who says that we are alone in the universe?

69 END !
