Distances Driven On Other Worlds – Infographic
We’re still at the beginnings of space exploration. I can’t believe it’s over 40 years since the moon landings. The way that technology has progressed in that time, you would think we would have taken greater strides in space. In 1900 Queen Victoria was still alive. The Victorian era seems a world away from the space age, yet only 68 years after Victoria’s death humans were walking on the moon. With that level of progress you’d probably expect humans to be living on the moon by now. But no, lunar explorations seems to have taken a back seat. Take a look at this infographic looking at the distances driven on other worlds. It doesn’t add up to a great deal of mileage, but it’s impressive all the same. From Space.com.
