Slide 2: 

This is a trip at high speed, jumping distances by factor of 10. Start with 100 equivalent to 1 meter, and increasing sizes by factor of 10s ,or 101 (10 meters), 102 (10x10 = 100 meters, 103 (10x10x10 = 1.000 meters), 104 (10x10x10x10 = 10.000 meters), so on, until the limit of our inmagination in direction to the macrocosmos. Later let’s return, a little faster, up to the point where we started and continue our trip in the opposite direction reducing distances of travel by factors of 10 into the microcosmos. Observe the constancy of the laws of the universe and think about how much the human race still needs to learn...

Slide 4: 

Distance to a bunch of leaves, in the garden 100 1 meter

Slide 5: 

Start our trip upwards .... We could see the foliage. 101 10 meters

Slide 6: 

At this distance we can see the limits of the forest and the edifications 102 100 meters

Slide 7: 

We will pass from meters to kilometers.. Now it is possible to jump with a parachute ... 103 1 km

Slide 8: 

The city could be observed but we really can not see the houses 104 10 km

Slide 9: 

At this height, the state of Flórida - USA, can be seen.. 105 100 km

Slide 10: 

Typical sight from a satellite 106 1.000 km

Slide 11: 

The north hemisphere of Earth, and part of South America 107 10.000 km

Slide 12: 

The Earth starts looking small... 108 100.000 km

Slide 13: 

The Earth and the Moon’s órbit in white.... 109 1 millón de km

Slide 14: 

Part of the Earth’s Orbit in blue 1010 10 Millons de km

Slide 15: 

1011 100 millons de km Órbits of: Venus and Earth...

Slide 16: 

Órbits of: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars and Júpiter. 1012 1 billón de km

Slide 17: 

At this height of our trip, we could observe the Solar System and the orbits of the planets 1013 10 billons de km

Slide 18: 

1014 100 Billons de km The Solar System starts looking small...

Slide 19: 

The Sun now is a small star in the middle of thousands of stars... 1015 1 trillón de km

Slide 20: 

At one light-year the little Sun star is very small 1016 1 light-year

Slide 21: 

Here we will see nothing in the infinity.... 1017 10 light-year

Slide 22: 

“Nothing” Only stars and Nebulae... 1018 100 light-years

Slide 23: 

1019 1,000 light-years At this distance we started travelling the Via-Láctea (Milky Way), our galaxy.

Slide 24: 

We continued our travel inside the Via-Láctea. 1020 10,000 light-years

Slide 25: 

We started reaching the periphery of the Via-Láctea 1021 100,000 light-years

Slide 26: 

At this tremendous distance we could see all the Via-Láctea & other galáxies too... 1022 1 millión light-years

Slide 27: 

From this distance, all the galaxies look small with inmense empty spaces in between.The same laws are ruling in all bodies of the Universe. We could continue traveling upwards with our imagination, but now we will return home quickly 1023 - 10 million light-years

Slide 46: 

104 Questions that come to our minds ... Who are we? Where are we going? From where did we come from?

Slide 47: 

103 Or... What do we represent in the Universe?

Slide 48: 

102 In this trip “upwards” we went to the power of 23 of 10

Slide 49: 

101 Now we are going to dig inside of the matter in an inverse trip...

Slide 50: 

We arrived at our starting point. We could reach it with our arms... 100

Slide 51: 

Getting closer at 10 cm ...We can delineate the leaves. 10-1 10 Centímeters

Slide 52: 

At this distance it is possible to observe the structure of the leaf. 10-2 1 Centímeter

Slide 53: 

The cellular structures start showing... 10-3 1 Millímeter

Slide 54: 

The cells can be defined. You could see the union between them. 10-4 100 microns

Slide 55: 

Start our trip inside the cell... 10-5 10 microns

Slide 56: 

The nucleus of the cell is visible. 10-6 1 micrón

Slide 57: 

Again we changed the messuring unit to adapt to the minúscule size. You could see the chromosomes. 10-7 1.000 Angstroms

Slide 58: 

In this micro universe the DNA chain is visible. 10-8 100 Angstroms

Slide 59: 

...the chromosómes blocks can be studied. 10-9 10 Angstroms

Slide 60: 

It appears like clouds of electrons... These are carbon átoms that formed our world. You could notice the resemblance of the microcosmos with the macrocosmos... 10-10 1 Angstrom

Slide 61: 

In this miniature world we could observe the electrons orbiting the atoms. 10-11 10 picómeters

Slide 62: 

An inmense empty space between the nucleous and the electron orbits... 10-12 1 Picómeter

Slide 63: 

At this incredible and minuscule size we could observe the nuceous of the atom. 10-13 100 Fentómeters

Slide 64: 

Now we could observe the nucleous of the carbon atom 10-14 10 Fentómeters

Slide 65: 

Here we are in the field of the scientific imagination, face to face with a proton. 10-15 1 Fentómeter

Slide 66: 

Examine the ‘quark’ partícules There is nowhere more to go...At the limits of current scientific knowledge . This is the limit of matter... 10-16 100 Atómeters

Slide 67: 

And now ...Are you the center of the universe? Are you the special creature of the Creatión? What is behind those limits? Are there any limits? Note that going “downwards” we could only go to the power of minus 16ªof 10 and reached the (known?) limits of matter... But upwards we went to the power of 23ª of 10 and stopped... But really we could have continued our trip with out limits to our imagination!!!! ... then? ...who says that we are alone in the universe?
