Waaaaaay down the rabbit hole!

I teach a nonlinear dynamics course, and at some we talk about fractal dimensionality and self-similar structures like Mandelbrot sets. I LOVE this video, which zooms down into a Mandelbrot set through 214 orders of magnitude. I will let you figure out what an outrageous change in scale that is.
