German artist Dirk Loechel just completed a geektastic project that he began working on over a year ago. Behold the awesome and exhaustively-detailed glory that is Loechel’s Size Comparison chart of Science Fiction Spaceships. The full-size chart measures 4,268 x 5,690 pixels and contains so many ships that, every time we start looking for a specific vehicle, we get distracted by countless others. Most of the ships are grouped by franchise. He also included the ISS at the top (in a yellow box to the right of the title) to help provide a sense of real-life scale. And before anyone gets upset about the absence of enormous spacecraft such as the Death Star or Halo’s CSO-class supercarrier and small ships like TIE fighters or X-wings, please note that, for reasons of image quality and organization, the chart only includes ships measuring between 100 and 25,000 meters long. Loechel also has an excellent explanation for why there’s no TARDIS on the chart either, saying that it’s both too large AND too small to be included. We rather like that. Click here to view the chart in all its full-size glory. The chart is not being offered for sale. Instead Loechel encourages fellow sci-fi enthusiasts to simply go ahead and print out a poster-size version for themselves. [via Nerd Approved and The Mary Sue]
