Visually zoom from the visible universe down to smallest possible object in 61 decimal places.
Art project in refinement for decades. Finally finished only in recent years when physics and astronomy made the outermost levels possible. Numbers represent very approximate meters across of main object in image using scientific notation where E denotes power of ten. These are reduced versions; contact me for inquiries about wall sized printed reproduction custom made for your location.

Observable Universe. 1.7E26m
About 18 billion light years expanse to horizon of physically visible space. Each dot represents one or more galaxies, over one million total. Foggy sections are obscured by the Milky Way.
Local Galactic Supercluster. 2.7E24m
About 300 million light years across. Cluster of clusters of galaxies, centered on Virgo cluster. Each dot represents a galaxy, several hundred total.
About 1.4 million km in diameter, and 150 million km (1.5E11m) away.
Solar System. 2.5E8m
Relative sizes to scale, not distance. About 4.5 billion km (4.5E12m) to Neptune.
Relative sizes to scale, not distance. 12,756km diameter. Moon is 3,476km diameter (3.5E6m) averaging 384,400km (3.8E8m) orbit.
Point of recursive self inclusion. Closest panel to actual size. Crossover where scale inverts.
Micrograph of retinal neurons and supporting cells. Averaging 20 micrometers long.
Hydrocarbon. Section about 9 nanometers across. Scanning Tunneling Electron Micrograph rendering.
Visualized cloud of minimum topologically nontrivial fields in Euclidean space. Plank Length realm of smallest meaningful quanta size.
