Not to scale

Solar system

This makes our Solar System seem WAY more… eh… I want to say interesting, but our Solar System is relatively interesting… to us I mean, since it gave us life and all that. (Probably a mediocre system in a galactic sense) But this way of displaying it makes it seem cooler somehow.

You’d need a couple more Styrofoam balls for your school project diorama though.  Which is probably why they stick to the ‘main’ celestial bodies. Ex Pluto. Obviously. Still a sore spot for me. Although apparently the new Director of NASA disagrees and says it should be a planet. I wish you good luck in your battle against the Pluto-denialists.

While I’d like to be more than an a casual commentator on all things cosmological it is an area of for which I am cognitively unsuited. Still, what I lack in accuracy and understanding  I make up for with enthusiasm. Find more posts

    I’m sorry but Pluto does not fit the proper description to be a planet. Plus, if you follow the dark past of Pluto (and Walt Disney’s role in it’s inception into “planet-hood”) you’ll see that it never should have been called one and …. its all a conspiracy! 😮duh-duh-duuuhhh (theatrical music)

        No. Remember Twilight Imperium? Remember the big knife I carry? Remember the Libertarian good times? I’m sure you can come to see the truth instead of clinging to your idealistic (brainwashed) youth 😉 Rise to freedom, my friend! Rise and Fly!!

        Damn *wipes tear away* dust…


        I forgive you. We can still be friends.

        Lets just agree not to talk about it anymore. Ha ha.

        True. I am like a leaf on the wind.

        Tomorrow it might all be vitriol and anti-crunchy rhetoric.

        Ha ha. I actually mostly like crunchies. Except for the anti-vaxx stuff… which I massively and completely disagree with. I’m fine with almost everything else, the homeschooling, environmentalism, zero waste…. eh… what else are crunchy’s into?
