What is scale of the universe?

The Scale of the Universe takes you on a ride down to the smallest thing theorized by scientists and then out to the vastness of the universe. The interactive opens with a variety of objects shown on the screen, from a Giant Earthworm to a hummingbird.

What is the size and scale of the universe?

The comoving distance from Earth to the edge of the observable universe is about 14.26 gigaparsecs (46.5 billion light-years or 4.40×1026 m) in any direction. The observable universe is thus a sphere with a diameter of about 28.5 gigaparsecs (93 billion light-years or 8.8×1026 m).

How big is the universe simulation?

9.63 billion light-years
The Uchuu simulation consists of 2.1 trillion particles in a computational cube an unprecedented 9.63 billion light-years to a side. For comparison, that’s about three-quarters the distance between Earth and the most distant observed galaxies.

Is the Universe infinite?

If the universe is perfectly geometrically flat, then it can be infinite. If it’s curved, like Earth’s surface, then it has finite volume. Current observations and measurements of the curvature of the universe indicate that it is almost perfectly flat.

Why can we see 46 billion light years?

The universe is about 13.8 billion years old, so any light we see has to have been travelling for 13.8 billion years or less – we call this the ‘observable universe’. However, the distance to the edge of the observable universe is about 46 billion light years because the universe is expanding all of the time.

How big is the multiverse?

multiverse, a hypothetical collection of potentially diverse observable universes, each of which would comprise everything that is experimentally accessible by a connected community of observers. The observable known universe, which is accessible to telescopes, is about 90 billion light-years across.

How small is earth compared to the universe?

All of the sudden, Earth starts looking small. Meaning that Earth makes up about 0.0003% of the total mass of our solar system. For comparison, Earth makes up about 0.2% of the total mass of the planets. We orbit the sun at an average distance of 93 million miles, which is equal to 1 Astronomical Unit.

What is the scale of the Universe 2?

Scale of the Universe 2. If you have ever wondered where we fit in the universe, then this interactive is for you. The Scale of the Universe takes you on a ride down to the smallest thing theorized by scientists and then out to the vastness of the universe. The interactive opens with a variety of objects shown on the screen,

How to explore the diversity of sizes in the universe?

Below those images is a scroll bar that you can use to explore a diversity of sizes. You can move the scroll bar to the left to view smaller and smaller objects, while moving it to the right allows you to view larger and larger ones. This resource can be used to help enhance any unit on the universe or the structure of matter.
