            It was a graphic showing that the distance between the Earth and the moon would comfortably fit all eight other planets (yes Pluto) AND also including a chunk of rock named Ceres in the asteroid belt beyond Mars.

            Depending how much room you wanted to give each planet, Jupiter and Saturn would have to be turned on their sides thanks to their oblong shape.

            A follow up graphic showed that the diameter of Saturn's rings is bigger than the distance from the Earth to the Moon.


            The money tweet about if they actually did somehow get placed into orbit between us and the moon was this though:
            "What would happen to them? They'd start to accelerate into Jupiter while Jupiter itself slowly moves to the right. There'd be intense explosions as they collide and lots of super heated devastation as the planets form one mass, but it's the stock market that'd suffer the worst."
            “Demolish the bridges behind you… then there is no choice but to build again.”

              My favorite is comparing star size. There are stars so large if they were our sun Saturn's orbit would be within the star.

              So maybe we should stop thinking god cares about where we put our winkies.

                • What about observing celestial bodies? Of course, the surface of Mars cannot be examined in detail, but with a sufficiently powerful telescope, you can follow the storms that occur in the atmosphere of Mars, you can follow the surface of the Moon, and with sufficient skill and experience, you can also follow the Sun. Not so long ago I became interested in observing space, I have already bought my first telescope. Chose the Celestron Computerized Telescope model.
