I did not realize Mars was so small.
If our solar system ever has to go to war against another solar system, this should be our flag…
Yeah, but I would add Pluto on the side all alone and sad.
If you added Pluto, you would have to add all of the other Minor Planets as well.
One of my first thoughts was ‘Where’s Pluto?’ I keep forgetting and every time I remember it bums me out.
Uranus is pretty big.
Yes it is, and I see what you did there.
279.6 kilometers per pixel? Why not 300, or 100? That’s kind of an odd number to chose…
Off topic slightly, but I picked up a Baby Einstein dvd about space at the library for my girls to watch while I cook dinner or take a shower (I know, *gasp!* oh the horror!). When it got to the part about Uranus, the narrator mispronounced it every single time. And every time she said it I told my girls, “no, it’s actually pronounced yer-uh-nuhs.”
You know there’s something wrong with the world when you have to correct an educational dvd.
This is mean to poor Pluto.
