Ever wonder how big a red blood cell is compared to the flu virus? Or a single chromosome compared to an atom?

This is the coolest thing I've seen all week.

I'm subscribed to makezine's RSS feed and they had it: http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2009/10/the_long_zoom_of_cells.html. Even my girls loved it.

You know you don't know much about biology when you have to click through 20 links in wikipedia just to figure out what a lysosome is. =)

Does anyone read this thing?
