This is interesting. As fast as light is, it's rather slow when you take into account the vastness of space.

@capngloval wow, the speed of light vs that 2x picture of the Sun looks quite slow too.

I really like how they spend so much time on the third and fourth examples. The very act of sitting through it makes you think, "wow this is taking forever."

@capngloval @moritzheiber light is extremely slow at the scale of a galaxy, and not even moving at the scale of the universe. Which is why people should stop hoping for a second home, and take care of the only one we'll have for the foreseeable future
