Fun with planets!

I got a heads up from Chris Jones from space-facts.com about this image he’d made of the 8 major planets in our solar system.

All the planets to scale. Isn’t that a brilliant graphic? It really gives you a good sense of how large they are compared to each other.

And actually, if you like that, you should really have a glance over the rest of space-facts.com too. It’s full of lovely stuff!

    Great graphics. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I read somewhere–I believe it was in Bill Bryson’s A Short History Of Nearly Everything–that making a truly scale model of the solar system is impossible.
