So, how big ARE these martian meteorites..?

We now have pictures of five – yes, FIVE! – different meteorites discovered by Oppy as she trundled across the vast Meridiani desert. But it’s hard to compare them to each other without some common point of reference, isn’t it?

Well, I’ve made a graphic that attempts to show the meteorites all” side by side”, in a way. But everyone PLEASE note, this is JUST a bit of fun, I’m not claiming for a fleeting moment that it’s accurate enough to use as any kind of scientific reference illustration. It’s simply to give a rough idea of the sizes of these beautiful Barsoomian star stones, ok? So, no complaints about scale, or anything like that, please. Just go with it. 🙂

Cool seeing them all “side by side”, isn’t it? 🙂

    Although it is a noble effort, I think your depiction of Block Island is, however, definitely too big, unfortunately.

    The width of the rock is about twice that of the lady’s shoulders. A woman would have to be tiny to have 30 cm shoulder width. Perhaps you could resize all of the images to an approximate shoulder width of 40 cm so that Block Island would be about 1.5 times her shoulder width.

    It’s VERY cool to see them scaled to a person, thanks!
