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.
