If the Earth were 100 pixels wide, the Moon would be 3000 pixels away. Mars, at its closest, would be 428,000 pixels away. At the current state of space technology, it will take around 150 days to get to Mars.
Distance to Mars website, created by David Paliwoda & Jesse Williams, calculates the earth’s distance to Mars in a super cool way, in pixels.
Better to watch it on Chrome.

We have already seen the colorful aerial patterns created in the sky of North America during 24 hours. With this new 24 hour observation, you can understand that from space earth looks like a beehive of activity. As the light of day is moving from the east to the west and Earth spins on its axis, aircrafts cross the whole universe, creating numerous different patterns.

As if you didn’t already know that.
Still, if you get caught up in Conflict History, a very interesting, google-maps-based website that puts all the wars known to mankind (from 4000 BC to now, sourced from Wikipedia) on the map, you can’t help but be amazed by the amount of conflict that went on at any point in time. You might know about the big ones, you know about the current ones, but, believe me, there has never been a peaceful moment on this planet.
