Cosmic Eye


Enjoy images worth spreading: interactive, educative, inspiring.

IDEA. This app features unique royal-quality views of our Universe gathered by world-class scientists. With a single touch you zoom into the smallest elementary particles and out to the largest scales of our Universe.

RESOURCES. Where possible, the app displays real photographs obtained with modern objectives, telescopes, and microscopes. Other views are phenomenal renderings of state-of-the-art computer models.

INSPIRATION. This app draws inspiration from a progression of increasingly accurate graphical representations of the scales of our Universe, including the classical movie “Powers of Ten” (1977), directed by Charles and Ray Eames.
