Time to Replace "Powers of Ten"?

I typically show Charles and Ray Eames' "Powers of Ten" video in my Introduction to Astronomy class each semester. The cheesy music is nice, but I find the visuals of this original (done before the age of computer animations) have held up pretty well against the more modern competitors. Until now. The American Museum of Natural History has a new video that is shorter and more accurate.
