An Impossible Question To Visualise,

but this might make things easier to understand,

the question, how big is space? Josh Worth's project allows users to scroll through a scaled-down version of our solar system, imagine our moon was just 1 pixel in size, he produced a map that you can scroll through to see a representation of how large Earth and our eight closest celestial friends really are, so go to this link and start scrolling, see how long it takes before you give up, if you want to cheat use the slide at the bottom of the page, the last entry about where the next object of interest is can only be called mind blowing!
