Zoom into Concrete



This video is simply awesome. It slowly zooms in on concrete until it reaches the atoms, while verbally explains what we're seeing. I wish there were others like it taken of different materials.

Are there more of these? I could watch a whole series of this.

It's worth noting that those are silicon atoms, not concrete atoms, as concrete is not an element.

Can it zoom in and see Bin Laden's tiny penis?

There's a well-known 9-minute 1970s-era short film by Charles and Ray Eames that does the same sort of thing with human tissue. Actually it shows outer space at one extreme and the electron cloud inside a carbon atom in a man's hand at the other. It's called "Powers of Ten" and I believe it's available on DVD. It's even more engrossing than this one.
