If The Moon Were Only One Pixel…

When you think of a map of our solar system, what do you imagine? A set of planets neatly orbiting the sun in tight circles, perhaps? While visually appealing, such maps are inaccurate; there is so much empty space between planets, you’d need a much bigger – and duller – map to correctly display the size. Josh Worth has taken these mind-boggling stats and brought them down to a more manageable scale: pixels. If the moon were the size of a single pixel in your browser, how big would a page containing the solar system be?

Hint: You’re going to do a lot of scrolling.
