The Nerdiest Thing In The World


Another tip of the hat to the excellent bad astronomer for bringing this gem to my attention. Possibly the nerdiest picture I have ever seen (click on it for the full version), but one that may well answer many an argument over coffee at the office (If like me you work in an almost all male astronomy department). A scale picture of just about every spaceship you can think of from TV or film and I thought I had too much time.

AWESOME.

IS is sad to say I actually knew most of these sizes before I saw the poster?? (Don't worry, I know the answer to tat question...)

Also, according to http://www.theforce.net/swtc/ds/
Death Star I was between ~70 and ~200km in diameter, while
Death Star II was apparently anything between ~100 and nearly 1000km in diameter.

Most excellent, shame there's no millenium falcon or bucky o' hare's ship the "righteous indignation"

I still wanna know how the following size up:

The Internatioanl Space Station

The Millenium Falcon (as jps noted)

The new Battlestar Galactica

A B5 jumpgate

The Vorlon Planet Killer

The Shadows Planey Killer

Oooo, oooo, oooo.

Just thought.

B4 is supposed to be much bigger than B5 right?
