But when we have warp drive, it'll be a snap!

Visualizations that help convey the non-human scale of distances in space are always nice, but even so, they never really make it totally clear. I just don't think the human brain is wired to conceive of these kinds of distances.

Nevertheless, how far away would Mars be if Earth was only 100 pixels of your computer monitor in diameter? Find out!

Hello again. Just so you know, I tried to comment on your Chopin post but the link doesn't work. Also can't see your video. But enjoyed your post.
