The Size of our World

The universe is big. I mean really big. You may think walking down to the corner shop is a long way but let me tell you ...
(a paraphrase from the Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy).
Rense.com has posted a graphic display of how large Earth is compared to the rest of the universe. This is the first picture showing the scale of Earth to our nearest neighbours. It gets more amazing as you scroll down the page.
