    Even though it`s old, I love the editing when it`s zooming out.

    And you you think that`s intense, watch The Mole Song.

    After watching that, you know what 23 zeroes can mean, then imagine 40 o_0

    this makes me wonder.....

    if space is vast and endless, whats at the end?

    what`s smaller/inside the smallest molecule we`ve seen?

    are we an electron(earth) circling a nucleus(the sun)?

    Brainache!!!

    "But 10^0 isn`t 1 meters, it is 10 multiplied by 10 zero times, which is some advanced poo in mathematics."

    Not really. 10^0 is the same thing as saying 10^5/10^5.
    In Math 10^5/10^3=10^2
    So 10^0 is nothing more than 10^5/10^5. And 10/10= 1

    Sorry there humperdink - 10 to the 0 is one. To simplify for you it is 10 with zero zeroes... or 1. My brother just finished grade 5, and he knows that. Advanced? I don`t think so. I do think that you should think twice about going into business as a math tutor though.
