Off topic: If the moon were a pixel...

I love infographics that demonstrate the sheer scale of the world around us, I've posted on this topic before.

One that's been doing the rounds recently is this one from Josh Worth: If the moon were only one pixel
His website is also worth checking out, and you can find him @misterjworth

Universe Today has a nice summary of it. It reminded me of doing this Solar System Walk at the Gravity Discovery Centre in Gingin, Western Australia.

Click the icons at the top to shortcut to the celestial bodies, and look at the page source to see all the funny commentary text. Worth the 5 minutes to check it out and ponder the universe...
If you were on a road trip, driving at 75mi/hr, it would have taken you over 500 years to get here from earth
Space travel sure will be boring if we can't figure out a way to go faster...
