    a.k.a. a tediously accurate map of the Solar System. In case you need a reminder of just how small we are compared to the Universe.

    Eris, technically it's now considered a dwarf planet like Pluto so I suppose that's why it's not there.

    says someone who didn't see the buttons at the top ... :cool:

    I was pretty OK with the inner planets, but had forgotten that Jupiter was 5x as far from the Sun as the Earth, and Saturn almost 10x. No wonder SF book and movie writers have to invent ways of making distance less of a problem e.g. Warp Drive, Hyperdrive, etc. My favourite is the Alderson Drive from The Mote in God's Eye, which works - barely - and might just kill you in the process ...

    Another one from a couple of years ago. Goes outward and inward in scaled sizes of objects.

    If you used the buttons at the top, then you missed the point in the map, and all the text in between those vast distances!
