The Scale of the Solar System

We, as in humankind are an arrogant bunch. We like to be the centre of attention and think ourselves rulers amongst animals (even though we are animals ourselves), But when we start looking outwards we suddenly get a glimpse of just how small and insignificant we are in comparison to the Scale of the Solar System, let alone the universe!

We all know that Jupiter is big and that we live in this solar system with 8 planets orbiting our sun but do you truly know just how big Jupiter is? Or more to the fact how big our sun is?

Well, this little infographic we made may help you to realize just how small we are.

So remember just how small we are in the scheme of our solar system and if you really want your mind blown starting looking at the rest of our Galaxy, other galaxies and the universe.

The Scale of this wonderful place is astounding.
