Planetary Space

I personally feel that back when I was at school, we were taught a lot of unnecessary things, like where was the how-to-do-SARS Module 1, and Understanding-Car-Payments-Watch-For-Balloons 101, and so forth in school?

Not only that, I feel many of the things we learnt were either outdated or no longer valid, and I don't think that irrelevance or incorrectness has changed for school in this day and age, I'm about 33.3% sure of that! Take the Solar System for instance, we got fed pretty pictures and stale information about space and the moon but do we really even understand the basics?

I had a vague idea that the planets were pretty far away and spaced well apart from each other, but how cool is this website that really does an epic job of giving you an idea of how far apart everything is, and how far from us (on Planet Earth) things are; spoiler, very VERY far!

You can see the excellent site here, but do it in your lunchtime or after work because you'll be scrolling reading the fun facts in-between for a while!
