Thanks for showing this. I had only a vague idea. But as men always say size doesn't matter.

This was so interesting to see. I really didn't have much of a concept of the relative sizes of the planets. Thanks for showing this.

Heh, well that is strange, I just posted on our Solar System's scale yesterday!

Nice! :)

Apparently Pluto just lost it's planet status...there we go - size really does matter!

Matt said...

It actually wasn't primarily Pluto's size that let to its demise as a planet, it was because of its orbit and the fact that it passes through Uranus' orbit for a number of years.
