what does 2 to the power of 100 really look like? this is something that Nathan has got on his site and I just thought I’d put it up here cos when you read it it’ll probably blow you away 😮
“…The star nearest our solar system is Proxima Centauri. It is 4.2 light-years away, which means that its light takes 4.2 years to get here. That is 6,700 times farther than Pluto. Another huge jump in scale — much larger, for example, than the 200x jump from the width of a city to the width of the United States. You can pretty easily wait the 5.5 hours it takes for light to go from the Sun to Pluto, but waiting the 4.2 years it takes for light to get here from Proxima requires a good deal more patience. Even the very nearest star is incredibly far away…“ ..and so on

Thanks for bearing with me through the problems of the old bulletin board. As it was pretty much just myself who was posting decent stuff to that I have decided to change the whole format of the page, and as you can see, it is now a blog.
There was a lot of material on the BB so I am now going to start the process of transferring all those links across to this page.
Hope you enjoy yourselves here!
