How Big the Solar System's Planets are Relative to Fruit Sizes

This illustration shows a pretty cool way to wrap your head around how much bigger some of the planets in our solar system are compared to others. It was created by Avi Solomon using data from BBC Two's show "Stargazing live."

From largest to smallest, Jupiter is represented as a watermelon, Saturn is a large grapefruit, Uranus is an apple, Neptune is a lime, Venus and Earth are cherry tomatoes, Mars is a blueberry, and Mercury is a peppercorn.


It's still pretty messed up what they did to Pluto.
