Cosmic scale

Recommended Posts

I've always liked those kinds of scale pictures. Most drawings of the solar system, etc. promote a very skewed mental image of the relative sizes and distances of everything.

Probably because a picture that is both correct in size and scale kind of has very little to look at... or needs to be very very big, but... that's no excuse! :blush:

Hmm... I seem to recall attempting to draw one at one point when I was really young... I think I had 12 sheets of paper taped together or something. And I somehow suspect that my math was wrong and it was badly off anyway. I don't think I ever finished it.
