The contributions of different elements in a 70-kg person, if they were made up of the same ingredients as the Sun, including Helium and Hydrogen

The same chart/plot/diagram as before, but now i) it includes H and He, and β) the mass axis is shown logarithmically, which means that for every tick you go up, the mass in a 70 kg bag of Sun-stuff gets 10 times bigger. Using a logarithmic a great way to show the really, REALLY tiny amounts of things like germanium, krypton and tin that we can detect in the Sun. Even I'm not tripping out enough to use logarithmic balloon sizes on this though. Balloons are perfect. Don't try to change balloons. I mean, this chart features a helium balloon! ...to scale!
