FYI to whoever writes this: the Seattle reference is the Space Needle. 05:03, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Uranus is larger than all of these combined. Of course, it isn't on this map because it is full of gas. 05:50, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Just wondering... Does that mean, a spaceship could just fly trough Uranus? (No pun intended.) -- 07:16, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

And of course the earth is not correctly displayed: we have water which - in most cases - is not solid. -- jesterchen 07:23, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Water still has surface area. Edit: oh, I see what you mean now, from the title in the comic. I guess you have a point, but it's mainly there for comparison so it's not necessarily a mistake. --NeatNit (talk) 06:14, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
Under the water there is solid bottom --JakubNarebski (talk) 07:01, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
But then it is not "surface" anymore... but you two have a point. I focused mainly on the title, not the image text... So forget my comment :) -- jesterchen 09:12, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

There is also small section named "All human skin" (between Earth and Titan)... if you think about thread and needle... ugh... --JakubNarebski (talk) 07:01, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

This seems to be an island floating on something, maybe it's floating on the sun's plasma? --BelgianAtheist (talk) 08:24, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
