From Here To the Milky Way

Photographing the picnic in Chicago, 1977.

Photographing the picnic in Chicago from above, 1977.

A view from above of the picnic set-up from the 1977 production of Powers of Ten.  The site of the picnic, a golf course in Florida in the 1968 film, has been moved to a park on Lake Michigan in Chicago.  The journey out into the cosmos follows a perpendicular line from the hand of the sleeping man.  Changing the location of the picnic allowed this line of flight to approach the disk of the Milky Way galaxy at an approximate right angle.
