As it Turns Out, Things Are Pretty Far Apart

A beautiful piece of web art by Josh Worth, a kind of science lesson/meditation/poem in a browser window. 

Start with the idea that the Moon is represented by a single pixel, start scrolling to the right, and then gape at the vast, mind-defying nothingness that is our tiny corner of the galaxy.

And don’t give up. Keep scrolling, it’s so worth it.
