Universe in a Nutshell App

We created our first app “Universe in a Nutshell” – together with Tim Urban, the brain behind Wait but Why. You can seamlessly travel from the smallest things in existence, past the coronavirus, human cells and dinosaurs all the way to the largest stars and galaxies and marvel at the whole observable universe. You can learn more about each object or simply enjoy the sheer scale of it all. The app is inspired by the “scale of the universe” website by the Huwang Twins that we spent a lot of time with when it came out years ago – and felt that it was finally time to create a Wait but Why and Kurzgesagt version. 

You can get it in your app store, there are no in-app purchases and no ads. All future updates are included! And since this is our first app we would love to hear your feedback so we can improve it over time. If this sounds good to you, download the “Universe in a Nutshell” app now and leave us a five star review if you want to support it. Kurzgesagt and all the projects we do are mostly funded by supporters like you. So if you like the app we’ll make more digital things in future! 

Available for iOS and Android.
