Space ships drawn to scale

Molecular astrophysicist Invader Xan drew spaceships, real and fictional, to scale.

This, my friends, is an image showing several of the most notable spacecraft we plucky human beings have created (and are busily creating) to date. The past, the present, and the ones that never quite made it. All spacecraft shown are to scale (assuming my sources were accurate). Because I felt I needed to exercise my graphic design muscles. And because, well, let's face it — space ships are just inherently cool, aren't they?
