Pretty neat viewing, Enigma.
I never saw the movie, but liked how one could get lost within largeness or smallness.

There is a short film called "Powers of Ten".

It has the same basic idea as the website, except it started out looking at a sleeping man's hand in a park in Chicago. It then zoomed out one power of ten every ten seconds all the way out to the galactic strings. It then turned around and zoomed back in at one power of ten per second until it was looking at the guys hand again. Once there, it zoomed in all the way down to protons/quarks at one power of ten/ten seconds.
