Diagram Archive

As the site is updated, diagrams and visualisations get replaced with new shinier versions, I thought it would be nice to keep an archive as a reminder of how the designs have changed. Also included are some images that never made it to the site but are still interesting enough to warrant being included on the page.

  1. Hi, I’m a sixth grader and I AM DOING A PROJECT ON ALL THE PLANETS EXCEPT FOR EARTH. I was wondering if you could help me with an idea for the project. If you could reply to this by two weeks (because thats when the project is do) from now that would be great.
    Thanks a bunch, Thomas

    1. You could try to make a color copy of the planets then on a large white board start to past.them adding distance from.Sun. Next to each get the info on Google and neatly add to info box next to each planet rememering you’ll be the first ever to.show Pluto. You might mention that very important fact. If you want to add a lot more work.add pics of the most 4-6 Moons.
      Good Luck

  2. Hi my son is in 3rd grade,he need some pictures and information about MARS to do school project.Aliens,names,food and temperature .Could you send me some info.thanks

    1. Just in time. Over the last 2 days more info and never before seen pics of Pluto have made the Net like never before with its 1st fly- by ever. More than enough info for your report. A year ago none of most of this existed. We’ve gained so much more then even since just last week. A great time to be alive to learn all new information about Pluto since the beginning of time.

    2. Pluto is the second closest dwarf planet to the Sun and from 1930 when it was discovered up until 2006, it was also considered the ninth planet of the solar system. It is also the second largest dwarf planet, with Eris being the most massive known dwarf planet.

  3. Something interesting is using for lg distances AU’s. I ll bet most people don’t have any idea. To my best memory it means “Astronomical Unit” The avg distance Earth to Sun. 93,000,000 miles.

  4. what if the moon was covered in ice when it collided with the earth, wouldn’t that explain where earths water came from? it would also explain what created the ring of fire in the pacific.
    just a thought……
