One of the many extraordinary stats from the Washington Post’s guide to the universe in 31 numbers:
1.3 million: The number of Earths that could fit inside the sun if it were hollow.
Which somehow makes the next one seem almost manageable:
177: How many years it would take to drive to the sun at 60 miles per hour.
But then you hit this:
49 million: How many years it would take to drive to the next nearest star, Proxima Centauri.
I’m sorry, but my D-grade O-Level can’t cope. Does not compute. Does not compute.
