So I was watching this Sarah Berrelies video and at
about 35 seconds I realized I'd seen this before.
Turns out the whole video is a sort of homage to a
geeky film short I remember from junior high. Does
anyone else here remember the film or better yet
can you point to it on the web?

Ok, give up?

It's based on Powers of Ten. I remember first
seeing this film in the 6th grade or thereabouts and
it was really the first time the vastness of space
and the distances really became clear in my mind. I'm
sure it was a staple of most science classes of the
70's and 80's.
