    Susana Polo — Editor at Large

    Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy).

    It's not how big the solar system is, it's how you use it.

    Alphonse Swinehart's video Riding Light doesn't show us what it would look like if we moved away from the sun at the speed of light. Because once you get to that speed things get... well. Weird. But it does give you a sense of just how BIG our solar system is, so big that it can't even be dwarfed by the fastest thing in the universe.
