One picture is sometimes not enough to give a full and true representation of the object or phenomenon, especially when we are talking about the future. Of course, everyone knows that the Burj Khalifa is huge, but the question is huge, compared to what? And of course, everyone understands that the world’s largest telescope should be an impressive size, but only when these huge objects are shown in comparison with something you can actually realize their real size.
Reflecting thus, student Kevin Wisbith created an amazing project called “A Quick Perspective”.
Just look at these pictures you will understand what I mean!
1. The usual cat and Scorpion Pulmonoscorpius Kirktonensis
Prehistoric insects were much larger in size compared to today. Scorpions of the species Pulmonoscorpius kirktonensis had grown to the size of 24 inches (60 cm) or to a normal domestic cat. It’s great that they do not exist today, otherwise many are simply afraid to leave the house.
2. The world’s largest oil tanker
The largest ever oil tanker Seawise Giant reaches a length of about 500 meters. If you put it in the main lake in Central Park in new York, behind and in front of it will remain little more than hundreds of meters of free space.
3. Mine is “The World”
The kimberlite pipe “The World” is located in Russia. It is a diamond Deposit, discovered in 1955. The quarry has a depth of 525 m and a diameter of 1.2 km into the mine to put the second tallest building of America — Sears Tower, a height of 110 stories which is 443,2 m, its top is almost flush with the edges of the mine.
4. The Death Star
Death star battle station in space astro construction from the universe of “Star wars”. And although it does not exist in reality, its dimensions are impressive: the diameter is 1/4 the length of Florida.
When the Titanic were built, it was the largest sea vessel in history. Its length was 269 meters. Since then, the shipbuilding industry has leaped forward. US aircraft carrier “Ronald Reagan” has a length of 332 meters, and if the “Titanic” put him on the deck, it still will remain a free place.
6. Stone at a cost of 2.6 trillion dollars
Asteroid “Dionysus” is part of the asteroid belt “Apollo”, and its width is approximately 1.5 km away. the Cost of resources that are inside of the asteroid, is estimated at between about $2,600.000.000.000. If an asteroid was placed over the famous Golden gate bridge, it even would not pass in the span of the bridge.
7. The B-2 Bomber
This is one of the most advanced and most expensive aircraft in the world. But most people don’t even know how he really is huge. The wingspan of the b-2 is about 53 m, which is even larger than the width of a football field NFL.
8. Burj Khalifa
Currently the tallest building in the world, its height is about 830 meters. If he was placed in new York, it would be 304 meters taller than the world Trade Center, and 396 m above than Emper state building.
9. Rocket motor M-1
Rocket motor M-1 was developed in 1950es for the space program of NASA and was the largest engine ever built. Just look at him — being a diameter of more than 4 meters, it is able to cover a Smart car.
10. The largest radio telescope in the world
The biggest radio telescope to date is located in the Chinese province Guizhou and the diameter is about 490 meters. If he was placed in the center of Las Vegas, he would cover the territory scale, including half of such institutions as “The Mirage”, all the “LINQ” and the “Harrahs” and most of the “Venetian”.
