BOOK QUERY

Does anyone know the title of a picture book that starts out at ground level and gets higher and higher until the Milky Way is a little smudge, and also zooms in page by page, smaller and smaller, down to the nucleus of a single cell?

Thanks!

Try this link. I figured someone would have surely answered your question by now but when they hadn't I called my daughter-in-law who used to be a librarian. She wasn't 100% sure of the title but gave me enough information I was able to find this. According to the Web site, it's also available as a screen saver.

Also type Powers of 10 in a search engine and you'll bring up a number of similar things, including the fact that the Power of 10 Day is Oct. 10 (of course).

I saw an amazing Imax film that did just that at the National Air and Space Museum.
