### Powers of Ten

[

**Media:**Video]

The Powers of Ten exercise is probably familiar to most people in some form or another. Whether that be from The Simpsons or because you tried it out in Astrology class, the concept is pretty simple.

Basically this video starts out with the picnickers featured above, and then every ten seconds the distance from the picnickers is multiplied by ten. Eventually the distance starts becoming so large you move away from the Earth, the Solar System and even the entire Milky Way.

So check out this IBM demonstration video, and if you like this, I'm sure you'll like The Simpsons Couch Gag: Powers of Ten.
