Incredible!  I admit I was expecting the Earth-Mars one to be much shorter.

62.07 million kilometres at its closest approach. That's a long way boys. 😆

I like this one too

When you see the sun, if you hit the small icon on the bottom right, the page will scroll throughout the whole solar system to Pluto at the speed of light, one pixel equivalent to 3474.8 km.

If you listen very carefully you will hear the light at the beginning of it's travel say , 

" Did I turn off the gas stove before I left ? "

" Perhaps I should go back and check ! "

As a genuine OCD sufferer... I know exactly how light feels. 🙂
