What is it like Travelling through the Solar System at Light Speed? Watch and See!

This amazing video from animator Alphonse Swineheart gives us an idea of the vastness of space, showing how incredibly large our solar system is.

There are a few long trips between planets, but some fun facts keep it interesting.  Plus the point is that we are getting an idea of the scale of it all.

One thing to keep in mind is that each second the viewer is travelling 300,000 Km, equivalent to circumnavigating the Earth almost 8 times!

A good thing to remember is that if we were seeing the distance to the next star, proxima centauri, this video would be 4 years long!
