In line with an earlier post talking about the the scale of the solar system checkout if the moon were 1 pixel gives you a visceral feel for the size of the solar system. I only made it out to Saturn. It took a long, long time to scroll.
It makes you imagine how long an interplanetary trip would take. There is a lot of nothing. It was so boring just scrolling for a few minutes. Just black. No air.
- Traveling from Earth to Mars would take about seven months.
- Earth is at 150M km;
- Mars is at 225M km.
- Jupiter is a 13 month trip and is at the kilometer marker 750M. No rest stops.
