It’s because I read The Bad Astronomy Blog that I get links like this major freaking awesome comparison of sizes between various science fiction spacecraft.

Go and ogle.

    Being a major SF buff, that is pretty friggin’ awesome. :) It’s great to see how they all compare. The “2001 Space Odyssey” ring is probably the most realistic to current ISS size, shuttle size, and the current state of our technology.

    I wonder how many centuries it’ll take for our technology to catch up with our imagination? :)

    Wow. That’s awesome.

    Ogle is right! Big ships that were missing: ‘Close Encounters’ mother ship, ‘ET’ ship, ‘Independence Day’ mother ship and city destroyer vessels.

    I’m always amused at how truly ridiculous the ‘Executor’ is.

    The best thing about the Executor class is its tiny little bridge. Almost like a big body builder compensating for something…
