Is the Universe .0000000000000000000058% Solid, or . . .

. . . Or is the Universe 99.0000000000000000000042% empty?

Please consider the scale of things:  (by clicking here).  I was trying to do the math to work out the scale of our Solar System for me and the kids when I ran across this post by Josh Worth who already did it, or at least a version of it for me.  I just think this was so very cool of him to do.  Since I didn’t work on this harder, you have to click on the link to see his map where he begins by representing the size of our Moon as the size of a pixel on our computer screen.  After that, you just use your “right” arrow on your keyboard to scroll to the right and travel from one orbit to the next.  Oh, and better make some popcorn for the journey . . .  seriously,  make some popcorn.

    You still not afraid to make gigantic mistakes are you? That is why I won´t hesitate to go right after you into the unknown.
    A big hug for you and your family and my best wishes for the future.
