I don't care how long the drive is, I'm not going.


NTdG explained scale and space last year. He talked about imagining your typical classroom globe as the point of reference.

Space flights by Bezos, Branson, et al go to roughly 2mm above the surface of the globe.

The int'l space station orbits roughly 1cm above the surface.

The moon is 30 feet away from the surface.

Mars is roughly a mile from the surface of the globe.

You just might want to see a doctor if its stretched out that far.
