“How Big Is Our Solar System?” Infographic


The BBC has created a very, very large infographic titled “How Big Is Our Solar System?” Scroll down (which is a little odd) and it will take you from the surface of earth to the far reaches of space.

It’s similar to a couple of other infographics:

Scroll to see the ocean’s deepest depths is an interactive infographic from The BBC. Scroll down the infographic and it not only shows you information about what is happening at that depth of the ocean, it also provides videos and images.  “Our Amazing Planet: Top To Bottom,” is another one, but there’s no interactivity and it also covers above the ocean.

  1. Thanks for the pointer to this resource Larry; it sounds really interesting. However, here’s what we get:

    “We’re sorry but this site is not accessible from the UK as it is part of our international service and is not funded by the licence fee.”

    Would you believe it?! The *British* Broadcasting Corporation and we in the UK can’t access a resource they’re producing!
