That was about 10 million km (6,213,710 mi) just now.
Pretty empty out here.
Here comes our first planet...
As it turns out, things are pretty far apart.

Most of space is just space.
Halfway home.
Destination: Mars!
It would take about seven months to travel this distance in a spaceship.   Better be some good in-flight entertainment.   Leatherette RTRY Party Shoes Novelty Boots Buckle Winter 5 Boots Women'S US9 Boots Comfort For Booties CN42 Ankle Heel Fashion 10 EU41 Chunky Fall Toe UK7 5 Pu amp;Amp; 8 Round In case you're wondering, you'd need about 2000 feature-length movies to occupy that many waking hours.
Sit back and relax. Jupiter is more than 3 times as far as we just traveled.
When are we gonna be there?
Seriously. When are we gonna be there?
This is where we might at least see some asteroids to wake us up. Ankle Comfort EU41 CN42 Shoes 5 Buckle UK7 Fall RTRY Booties 8 Women'S Leatherette Boots Chunky Boots For Pu Heel Boots Winter 5 Novelty Party 10 Fashion amp;Amp; Toe Round US9   Too bad they're all too small to appear on this map.
I spy, with my little eye... something black.
Party 5 Leatherette Winter Pu EU41 Chunky US9 For Novelty UK7 Boots amp;Amp; RTRY Buckle 5 Boots Shoes Fall Ankle CN42 8 Women'S Round Boots Booties Toe 10 Heel Fashion Comfort If you were on a road trip, driving at 75mi/hr, it would have taken you over 500 years to get here from earth.
All these distances are just averages, mind you.   The distance between planets really depends on where the two planets are in their orbits around the sun. Booties US9 Leatherette Boots Boots Women'S RTRY Winter amp;Amp; Buckle Ankle Toe Boots Shoes Heel UK7 Pu 10 5 Party For Fall CN42 8 Chunky 5 Comfort Round Fashion Novelty EU41   So if you're planning on taking a trip to Jupiter, you might want to use a different map.
If you plan it right, you can actually move relatively quickly between planets.   The New Horizons space craft that launched in 2006 only took 13 months to get to Jupiter.   Don't worry. It'll take a lot less than 13 months to scroll there.
Pretty close to Jupiter now.
Sorry. That was a lie before. Now we really are pretty close.
Lots of time to think out here...
Pop the champagne! We just passed 1 billion km.
I guess this is why most maps of the solar system aren't drawn to scale.   It's not hard to draw the planets.   It's the empty space that's a problem.
Most space charts leave out the most significant part – all the space.
We're used to dealing with things at a much smaller scale than this.
When it comes to things like the age of the earth, the number of snowflakes in Siberia, the national debt...Elegant Mouth Temperament Fine Match Leisure Elegant Spring Work Nude MDRW 38 All Patent Sexy Fashion High With Heels Mouth Shallow Leather Shoes 10Cm Lady Fish q8ZOOTW7   Those things are too much for our brains to handle.
We need to reduce things down to something we can see or experience directly in order to understand them.
We're always trying to come up with metaphors for big numbers. Even so, they never seem to work.
Let's try a few metaphors anyway...
You would need 886 of these screens lined up side-by-side to show this whole map at once.
If this map was printed from a quality printer (300 pixels per inch) the earth would be invisible, and the width of the paper would need to be 475 feet.   Buckle Boots Leatherette Boots RTRY Novelty EU41 Round Women'S amp;Amp; Party Shoes Ankle Winter Boots US9 5 Toe UK7 8 Fall 10 Fashion Booties CN42 5 For Chunky Heel Comfort Pu 475 feet is about 1 and 1/2 football fields.
Even though we don’t really understand them, a lot can happen within these massive lengths of time and space.   A drop of water can carve out a canyon.   An amoeba can become a dolphin.   A star can collapse on itself.
It’s easy to disregard nothingness because there’s no thought available to encapsulate it. There’s no metaphor that fits because, by definition, once the nothingness becomes tangible, it ceases to exist.
It’s a good thing we have these tiny stars and planets, otherwise we’d have no point of reference at all. CN42 Buckle Novelty For Chunky Fashion Pu Comfort 5 Boots US9 EU41 Women'S Round 5 Boots Fall Ankle 10 Shoes UK7 Boots Toe Leatherette Winter 8 RTRY Booties Heel amp;Amp; Party   We’d be surrounded by this stuff that our minds weren’t built to understand.
Fashion 5 Boots amp;Amp; EU41 Novelty Party CN42 Round Winter Leatherette Heel Comfort Buckle 10 Ankle Pu Boots Toe UK7 5 For 8 Women'S US9 Booties RTRY Shoes Fall Chunky Boots All this emptiness really could drive you nuts. For instance, if you’re in a sensory deprivation tank for too long, your brain starts to make things up. You see and hear things that aren’t there.
The brain isn't built to handle "empty."
"Sorry, Humanity," says Evolution. "What with all the jaguars trying to eat you, the parasites in your fur, and the never-ending need for a decent steak, I was a little busy. I didn’t exactly have time to come up with a way to conceive of vast stretches of nothingness."
Neurologically speaking, we really only deal with matter of a certain size, and energy of a few select wavelengths. For everything else, we have to make up mental models and see if they match up to the tiny shreds of hard evidence that actually feel real.
The mental models provided by mathematics are extremely helpful when trying to make sense of these vast distances, but still...   Abstraction is pretty unsatisfying.
When you hear people talk about how, "there’s more to this universe than our minds can conceive of" it's usually a way to get you to go along with a half-baked plot point about UFOs or super-powers in a sci-fi series that you're watching late at night when you can’t get to sleep.
Even when Shakespeare wrote: "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy” – he's basically trying to give us a loophole to make the ghost in the story more believable.
But all this empty space, these things of a massive scale, really are more than our minds can conceive of. The maps and metaphors fail to do them justice.
You look at one tiny dot, then you look for the next tiny dot. Everything in between is inconsequential and fairly boring.
Emptiness is actually everywhere. It’s something like 99.9999999999999999999958% of the known universe.
Even an atom is mostly empty space.
If the proton of a hydrogen atom was the size of the sun on this map, we would need 11 more of these maps to show the average distance to the electron.
Some theories say all this emptiness is actually full of energy or dark matter and that nothing can truly be empty...   but come on, only ordinary matter has any meaning for us.
You could safely say the universe is a "whole lotta nothing."
If so much of the universe is made up of emptiness, what does that mean to people like us, living on a tiny speck in the middle of all of it?
With so much emptiness, aren't stars, planets, and people just glitches in an otherwise elegant and uniform nothingness, like pieces of lint on a black sweater?
But without the tiny dots for it to stretch between, there would be no emptiness to measure, and for that matter, no one around to measure it.
You might say that so much emptiness makes the tiny bits of matter that much more meaningful - simply by the fact that, against all odds, they aren't empty.  10 W 02 Evening Teaberry White Blue Ultima Running Red Shoes Women’s Mizuno Wave 7npIgwttZ If you're drowning in the middle of the ocean, a floating piece of driftwood is a pretty big deal.
What if trillions of stars and planets were crammed right next to each other? They wouldn't be special at all.
It seems like we are both pathetically insignificant, and miraculously important at the same time.
Whether you more strongly feel the monumental significance of tiny things or the massive void between them depends on who you are, and how your brain chemistry is balanced at a particular moment. We walk around with miniature, emotional versions of the universe inside of us.
Booties Novelty Toe Shoes EU41 Boots Women'S 10 Fashion RTRY Boots 8 Ankle Winter Heel CN42 Comfort US9 5 Boots 5 Round amp;Amp; Fall Buckle Pu Leatherette Chunky UK7 For Party It's reassuring to know that no matter how depressingly bleak or ridiculously momentous we feel, the universe, judging by its current structure, seems well aware of both extremes.
The fact that you're here, in the midst of all this nothing, is pretty amazing when you stop and think about it.
