Scale of Space

maintitle

 A couple of years ago I came across a Bill Nye video that explained the scale of the universe. I was searching for the distance of the earth to the sun and in my head remembered all of the models of the universe I had seen in school. It didn’t make sense to me that the sun was so big in these models and the earth to small yet when we see the sun from earth it seems not so large. Then I saw the video and it began to make sense to me. We’re freaking small guys. Click the image above to check out a cool website that breaks down the size of things.
