There are hundreds of space-in-perspective videos, graphics, and interactive’s trending around the internet, yet somehow they never get old. The size of the universe is just so hard to grasp.
Thanks to Josh Worth, a graphic artist and writer from Los Angeles, we have another interactive to add to the list. Worth accurately portrays the distances between the Sun and planets within our solar system using a single pixel to represent the Earth’s moon. The interactive allows you to view the solar system in many ways. You can scroll through using your mouse or arrow keys, jump through planet to planet using buttons at the top of the page, and if you have the time, sit back and let the interactive move at the relative speed of light, located in the bottom right. As the interactive travels from planet to planet, you will learn many interesting facts about our solar system. I hope you enjoy it, I know I did.
