Description:

Take this Flash animation for an imaginary trip from Mercury to Pluto to emphasize the great emptiness of space, even within our more densely packed solar system. Even at the incredible speed of this journey, some at 300 times the speed of light, there are significant wait times when traversing the outer Gaseous Giants. Note that the planets are lined up in the same direction for this animation and that this alignment is in reality a rare event. The animation can be paused and rewound to emphasize important points.
