Great comparisons (VI)

OK, maybe it's not too fair to clasify my own work as 'great', but I didn't know I would include one of my graphics on this serie... Anyway, a blog has always a bit of 'autoadvertising'...
This is a piece of a bigger graphic about Pluto, but this part is the only one interesting for the serie. We played with a idea. We converted the Earth into a football (soccer) ball. With that size, we converted the rest of planets of the solar system to the same scale. Then, we placed the sun on the Puerta del Sol (Sun's door means the name, a proper place), the main square of Madrid and placed the planets on their orbits always with the scale we said. And this was the result. It looked for us a good way to explain the astronomical distances between planets...



As usual, fiercest critiques are wellcome

Hola Chiqui, me encanta esta infografía. Sólo quiero llamarte la atención de lo que me parece un error, dado que Neptuno tendría que ser casi del tamaño que Urano y está representado mucho más pequeño.

Un saludo,
Alejandro.

Excellent graphics, it is amazing how the universe scaled in sizes, it is like fractal universe.
