Big globe, Small World

2 thoughts on “Big globe, Small World”

  1. Awesome article; I found it highly informative. I think I may have found a *slight* error though. In discussing the moon, you say “…and it would orbit the globe at a distance of 241 ft (73.5 m), or about two and a half American football fields.” An American football field (according to Google) measures 91.44 meters goal line to goal line. So the moon would orbit about 80% the length of an American football field (instead of 2.5x). Please check my math or let me know if I’ve made an incorrect assumptions.
