Space is Tedious, But Fascinating

Love this and have needed to blog it for awhile. «If the Moon Were Only 1 Pixel: A Tediously Accurate Scale Model of the Solar System» is a brilliantly creative work that represents graphically the massive amount of space in space.

On the page, 1 screen pixel corresponds to 3,474.8 km, “which is the diameter of the moon or the distance between New York and Las Vegas.” Bring up the page and scroll to the right. You’ll soon get the idea. (To skip to a planet, click one of the icons at the top of the page.) Excellent work by Josh Worth.
