Another cool video that puts the size of the planets in perspective.  From our standpoint in the solar system, the moon looks much larger than any of the other planets.  In this video, you can see how big all of the planets would be if they were the same distance away as the moon.

It's a good habit to write your future self a note that explains what was special about the resource when you scoop it. It only takes a minute but it'll save you time later! Plus, for others who see your scoop and comment, they can consider whether to read the page or not.
