 While roaming the internet, I came across this neat video about the scale of our solar system.

If you're like me, you have difficulty fully wrapping your brain around space distances. I understand intellectually that distance between objects in space is huge. But it can hard to visualize just how huge those distances are.

So maybe this video will help you get that picture in your head. It's been helping me.

Check it out - To Scale: The Solar System.

If you want to bend you brain slightly, try translating time into distance and then look at evolutionary history.

start at a scale of 1 inch = 1 hundred years. So, recorded human history is a span of 25 feet, give or take... and T.rex is out by Mars.
