“Voyager cost each American less than a penny a year from launch to Neptune encounter.” – Carl Sagan, ‘Pale Blue Dot’Today, 37 years following Voyager 2’s launch from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in 1977, the probe continues to string information back to Earth via the Deep Space Network, albeit being nearly 15,700,000,000 kilometres away. While its transmissions are faint, reflecting its distance from its homeport, Voyager 2 remains as the longest operating of all of NASA’s existing space probes.While its trajectory would eventually take the space probe past Uranus and Neptune, Voyager 2’s initial funding was meant purely for the space probe’s flyby studies of Jupiter and Saturn, and not for surveying these outer planets. This aside, Voyager 2’s flight path was selected from 10,000 proposed trajectories to preserve the option of studying the outer solar system if funding could be attained.Some of this celebrated space probe’s highlights include being the only probe to have visited all four outer planets – Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, expanding our understanding of Saturn’s complex ring system, and discovering Neptune’s “Great Dark Spot”.Celebrate the longevity of Voyager 2 by writing to Congress to let them know you support doubling funding for NASA:http://www.penny4nasa.org/take-action/Where is Voyager 2 now?http://goo.gl/YMb1FRVoyager 2 Twitter:http://goo.gl/4s09X8To read more about Voyager 2:http://goo.gl/7dDt5Mhttp://goo.gl/Rjw41Ghttp://goo.gl/AvQFDf

Jeff Russell's STARSHIP DIMENSIONS

WELCOME TO STARSHIP DIMENSIONS…

A Museum of Speculative Fiction inspired Spaceships

ABOUT THIS SITE

This site is intended to allow science fiction fans to get an impression of the true scale of their favorite science fiction spacecraft by being able to compare ships across genres, as well as being able to compare them with contemporary objects with which they are probably familiar. 

The scales are based on meter-to-pixel ratios so that they are accurate on any platform. The background grid is divided into groups of ten, and larger groups of one hundred pixels, to allow for easy measurement. 

This site is only intended to compare the actual physical dimensions of the starships herein, and makes no claims as to any other aspect of these ships (firepower, speed, etc.). Each genre is worthy of respect in its own right and no preference is given to any one genre. If you are interested in a certain vessel/being, I encourage you to view to film or read the books in which they originally appeared in all their glory. In time, I will provide the source information with each vessel to make it easier to find these sources.

The charts are intended to be interactive such that Internet explorer users may click and drag the starships within the charts to arrange them in whichever way they please. I am working on incorporating the same feature for Netscape and other web browser users. The site is very Graphics intensive by nature and therefore is targeted towards a higher bandwidth connection (DSL, etc). It will likely bog down dialup connections.

We have gathered many of the starship images from various sources on the web included in my LINKS page, plus some I have drawn from scratch. This site is a constant work in progress, you will have to check back often to catch the latest changes and additions.

Above all, this site is intended as an homage to the many great people who have created these ideas for us to enjoy, so Enjoy!

SURE Architecture's Endless City is a fascinating proposal that transforms the skyscraper into a stunning, upright ecosystemThe structure’s multiple floors are meant as flexible areas that are adaptable for many situations. Plazas and communal spaces offer breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.

I recently purchased a beautiful 1968 book ‘Exploring Space With a Camera’ by Edgar M Cortright for NASA. The book is full of space photography including shots of pre-Apollo non-manned Moon landings and early flybys of Mars.
