Earth and the Moon 

Earlier today, +Chris Hadfield posted this image on Facebook. 

The image features Earth and the Moon - properly scaled in distance and relative size to each other.  At this scale, the ISS isn't even one pixel!

I was in Rajasthan all month last month and saw a lot of people urinating in public, but didn't see a single instance of volunteers shaming offenders. I like the idea though.

Having lived in Bombay for a while, I can also tell you that they they also freely wee on the stairways of the office buildings, too. So, avoid the office stairways in Bombay!

How come Hubble's pictures of galaxies billions of light years away are so beautifully detailed, yet the pictures of Pluto, which is so much closer, are just little blobs? I get asked this question, or variations of it, a lot. Here's an explainer.
