Photo Series Puts the Size of Random Huge Objects in Perspective

By Casey Chan on at

This wonderful photo series comparing the size of things by Kevin Wisbith is a really fun way to earn some brain wrinkles, because it gives you a better sense of the true size of random buildings, ships, machines, and other objects. You get to see things like the Death Star hover over Florida in space, a B-2 bomber stretch across the width of an entire American football field, and the Titanic sitting on top of an aircraft carrier.

It’s totally weird to see things in places where they’re not supposed to be but also pretty interesting since you get a better perspective on their scale. You can see more comparison that Wisbith makes, like the largest radio telescope on The Strip in Las Vegas and a NASA M1 rocket motor compared to a car, here.

Here’s the Willis Tower (née Sears Tower) inside the Mir Mine in Russia. The Willis Tower is 1729 feet tall and the mine is 1722 feet deep.

The B-2 Bomber looks ginormous on an American football field because its wingspan is 12 feet wider than the width of the field.

Wisbith writes, “If the Titanic was placed on the deck of the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan the ship would have 210 feet of deck room left.”

The prehistoric Pulmonoscorpius kirktonensis scorpion was the size of cats. That ain’t right.
