—— 有感于《十的力量》(Powersof Ten, 1977) 





By力总 @甲子研究院  


Thisis a really interesting film about how large the universe is and how powers often become so drastically distant.

Itstarts out by showing a couple at a picnic in Chicago. It then shows anoverhead shot a meter up of the man lying down on the picnic blanket. It then proceeds to zoom out by increasing the distance by a power of ten every ten seconds; 10 to the first meters, 10 to the second meters, 10 to the third meters, and so on.

Beforelong the viewer is above the earth, then the solar system, then the galaxy,then much of the visible universe. The viewer is projected back forward by decreasing the powers of ten every two seconds.

Aftera while the picnic scene is displayed again, but it doesn't stop there. Theview returns to the regular speed and goes into the negative powers; ten to the negative first meter, ten to the negative second meter, and so on. The viewer is zoomed into the man's hand, and ends up zooming into a single proton in an atom.
