Resource: Scale of Every Vehicle and Space Station

We are often awed by looking up at the stars, appreciating the vastness of space and realising how small and insignificant we are in comparison. However, as a species, we have helped feed our curiosity by sending space craft into orbit to explore further, but the vastness of these ships is equally awe-inspiring. A detailed chart by reddit user Heaney555 shows every vehicle and space station in the history of human space flight. The chart was inspired by fellow reddit user firmada who created a similar chart showing the scale of the rockets used in space flight. The primary difference between the charts is the inclusion of space stations and non-rocket vehicles in Heaney555’s chart. If you look closely at the base of each ship, you will see that a person has placed to show how tall these rockets are in comparison.
