Solar System to Scale

If the Moon Were Only 1 Pixel A tediously accurate map of the solar system

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.
