Out of the Blue

What It Looks Like To Leave Our Solar System At The Speed Of Light (thanks Derek) I love stuff like this so much I can watch without skipping ahead too much. It's so cool being able to visualize the unimaginable, though the title is deceptive (it actually ends a little past Jupiter). Anyway, pretty enlightening right off the bat, as I certainly never pictured Mercury being as far from the Sun as it actually is, as the vastness of space is even vaster than I'd pictured.

China is roughly the size of the continental US with 4 times the population.
Well, yes and no -- if you include Alaska which obviously is mostly unpopulated. But your point is well taken. Hell, there are plenty of people walking the streets of the US I'd like to run down with my car.
