zoom into an oak tree's leaf from 10 million light years away

View the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons.

This is really cool! Do you happen to know links to the following as well? Exam is in 3 weeks! Human body --> organs --> cells of the liver, cells of the pancreas, cells of the heart, cells of the vessels, cells of the skin, cells of the lungs, cells of the kidneys, cells of the brain. Also would be good to get something on foetal development too! hahaha.
When do you go on holidays? Mine are coming up soon! Ah, the life of a student is tres fabulous!
