Visualizing Distance in Our Solar System [Infographic]

Space is a big place, a very big place, an unfathomably big place. Even our little corner of it is pretty gigantic, but it’s at least slightly more fathomable. If you think you’d like to attempt to fathom it, this infographic by the BBC is likely to help, illustrating the distance between you and the farthest reaches of the solar system with conveniently fathomable benchmarks. Spoilers: It’s still pretty hard to wrap your head around.

Get your mouse wheel finger warmed up and check out the full graphic below.
