Happy Earth Day Week!
The other day while searching for cool images of Earth I came across a chart. A chart that describes the distance between objects in space and earth. It starts with commercial aircraft altitude and goes along with fun facts along the way.
Here’s a few fun ones that grabbed my attention (all measured in distance from Earth):
1) Farthest traveled by a dog = 1660 km
2) GPS Satellites = 20,200 km
3) Farthest traveled by humans = 400,000 km
4) Cassini Probe which has been orbiting Saturn since 2004 = 1.5 billion km
5) Farthest man made object, Voyager 1 = 17.94 billion km
And that is just a few of the ones that jumped out while I was scrolling through our solar system.
Take a peak and learn some more about what is all really out there!
