Powers of Ten The Powers of Ten video is now available on YouTube. This classic short video zooms from 10-16 meters to 1024 meters at a rate of 10x per 10 seconds. The opening quote of the movie is:

A film dealing with the relative size of things in the universe and the effect of adding another zero.

It shows the amazing power of video. Edward Tufte calls the movie “one of the first and best visualizations” in Visual Explanations (page 23). He also recommends the book Powers of Ten by Phillip Morrison, Phylis Morrison, and the Office of Charles and Ray Eames.
