The Cosmic Calendar

This last December was the 10th anniversary of Carl Sagan's death. One of his most popular episodes of Cosmos was titled The Dragons of Eden where he first described his Cosmic Calendar. This website from discovery.com has a simple image showing the Cosmic Calendar as Carl described it. A few websites are selling posters of the Cosmic Calendar, like AllPosters.com.

The premise is that if you compress the entire history of the universe into a calendar year, homo sapiens only exist in the last 6 minutes, and the last second represents the last 400+ years of human history.

You can see Cosmos, and hear Carl describe it on YouTube here:


Bodies in the Solar System

Another great infographic on kokogiak.com showing the relative size of large objects (88 of them, at least over 200 miles in diameter) in our solar system. The largest (of course) being the sun down to the smallest, which is Davida, an asteroid 203 miles in diameter.


Starship Dimensions

As a follow-up to my earlier post on the Starship Comparison Poster, the Starship Dimensions website has a much more extensive library of sci-fi ships all shown to scale. There are so many here that the website is broken up into different pages from small scale up to "Big" scale. Click on the tabs across the top to pick a scale (100X, 10X, 1X, etc.).

Fantastic resource. Jeff Russell has done a great job accumulating the images and tracking down their relative sizes.


Imagining the Tenth Dimension

Ten dimensions are really hard for most people to understand. Especially since our lives are constrained to only four dimensions. This video from tenthdimension.com does an EXCELLENT job of using pretty simple animation and illustrations to explain the 10 dimensions of our universe.

This video is really good, even if you're not a physicist.


The Size of Our World

This is a simple, but great infographic. How big are the planets? How big is our Sun? How small is the Earth? The site shows five different images on increasingly larger scales.

No numbers or measurements. Easy to understand. So simple, yet SO informative.

Starship Comparison

Huge starship comparison image/poster that combines the starships from most of the poular scifi movies and shows into one graphic. Someone spend a lot of time figuring out the relative dimensions of these, and this really adds a new perspective to your favorite shows.

Includes Star Wars, Star Trek, Babylon 5, Battlestar Gallactica (the original series), Farscape, 2001:A Space Odessey, and a few others.
