The relative proximity of things

Captain’s log. Stardate 2011.58

A couple of days ago, via Tech, Science and Social News, I came across this fascinating video by veritasium. If the Earth were the size of a basketball and the moon a tennis ball, how far apart would they be? Most people guessed within an arm’s length although others took a few steps back. In fact, the distance from the Earth to the Moon at this scale is roughly 5,3 meters!

Curious, isn’t it? Let me know your opinion.

Enjoy.

So say we all!!
