How Far is it to Mars in Pixels?

Everyone wants to go to Mars these days, but how far away is it exactly? The answer: a long way away. Designed by David Paliwoda (a great jedi name), How Far is it to Mars? is an interactive website that demonstrates the enormous distance to the red planet using pixels.

If the Earth is a mere 100 pixels wide, how far away would Mars be? Well, to put it in perspective, the moon is 3000 pixels away… Have a look at David’s creation to discover for yourself the very lengthy journey to Mars. [gizmodo]
