reminds me of "Powers of Ten". Anyone know where I can get a copy of that to show my daughter?

Nice images, but the metallurgical commentary for the steel one is fairly crap: "... a particle of steel called dendrite. An alloy of iron and carbon, dendrite is found in all solid matter that crystallises on cooling: steel, aluminium and even snowflakes. When cooled rapidly, steel increases in strength, a process called tempering ..."

What an amazing journey. Only complaint is the video quality would like to see it on DVD or HDTV.
