Thinking about just how small the earth is in comparison to the rest of the galaxy is something not many of us might think about, but the 'Distance to Mars' website helps put the space between our planet and the red one in perspective.
The site works by starting at earth and travelling to the moon. From here, the user is sped at three times the speed of light towards the red planet. The demonstration helps to show us not only how small we are, but the expansive distance that exists between our planet and everything else out there.
Created by David Paliwoda and Jesse Williams, 'Distance to Mars' is a delight for curious minds young and old, but be warned; travelling such a distance so fast is a bit dizzying.
