View Earth from 10 Million Light Years

I was sent a link to this cool web page today and felt it was worth sharing here. It shows a view of the Milky Way Galaxy at 10 million light years from the Earth. From there it zooms in, closer and closer. Finally it zooms in on an oak, then to its leaves, to its cells and then to its atoms and finally all the way to quarks, the tiniest particles.

It sort of puts our existence on this tiny blue speck we call Earth into perspective.
