The Size Of Comet 67P Compared To Sci-Fi Spaceships

c1

As you surely know, the ESA managed to put the Philae lander on Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. But do you know exactly how big the comet is? It’s hard to grasp, but high school physics teacher Christopher Becke has made it easier to understand with a size chart that compares the comet with sci-fi spaceships and even some European cities.

He’s got the Galactica, DS9, Serenity, and even a Borg cube. There’s also the Death Star, which makes the comet look tiny, but that thing was so big it looked like a moon so, whatever. Combine Becke’s chart with this one with nothing but sci-fi ships and you’ll be even more amazed at this achievement.
