How Big Is It Really?: Important Events and Places Superimposed Over Your Neighborhood

The BBC’s new Dimensions website uses the size of important places and events in modern and ancient history as well as science, and superimposes the dimensions over any location on planet Earth. Doing so provides some perspective on events and places that most of us (or all of us in some cases) will never get to see first-hand, much like the “If It Was My Home” project did with the BP oil spill.

Head over to BBC Dimensions to put your neighborhood in the middle of some of history’s most memorable moments. Not to mention a few goodies such as the relative size of your region to the moon (pictured above) and the International Space Station (after the jump).
