Wow, so cool. So I wonder if there have been any attempts to go further down than that 1960's dive team. Fifty years, you'd think someone could have gone further.

What a beautiful poster!

Listening to NPR a bit ago, a Biologist was talking about the place (around 3000 ft below sea level) where light can't penetrate. She said one of the names for it was "The Cusp of Perpetual Darkness". That name has stuck with me...

Super-cool graphic - thanks for posting! Reminds me of the Eames Powers of Ten film.

I remember seeing something like this chart years ago, only it showed the gross financial distances between what super rich people made, and what normal people made.

That is an amazing graphic. We live and breathe and have our being within such a narrow range of the possibilities on this planet. Thanks for sharing. :)

I was having so much fun scrolling down the poster, then got to the oil rig... following it down, I just had to smack my hand to my forehead. Why did anyone think that was a good idea?
I really like the above-ground part of it, though- like the percentage of oxygen at different heights. Neat!

Thanks for posting that. I may have to bookmark it in fact!
