Returning to earth, we decelerate to arrive at the same scene with the same man asleep on the grass. We move in closer, as we again change the size of the scene by decreasing distance from the camera one magnitude each ten seconds. The surface of the skin on the man's hand gives way to cells and cell components, until we see the DNA moleculein. As our magnification increases, we penetrate the electron cloud of an atom and eventually arrive at the atomic nucleus, with its pulsating nuclear core elements at 10⁻¹⁶ meters. The width of the scene is 0.000001 angstroms. The film has moved in real time over its course of forty powers of ten, from the cosmic distances of the universe to the heart of the atom
