A little astronomy 101 - gravity wells in the Solar System explained.

sagansense:

we-are-star-stuff:

This chart shows the “depth” of various Solar system gravity wells.

Each well is scaled such that rising out of a physical well of that depth - in constant Earth *surface* gravity - would take the same energy as escaping from that planet’s gravity in reality.

Each planet is shown cut in half at the bottom of its well, with the depth of the well measured down to the planet’s *flat* surface.

The planet sizes are to the same scale as the wells. Interplanetary distances are not to scale.

i was literally just discussing this a few days ago. how the curvature of space time itself is like that of peaks & valleys, similar to the way the earth is not a sphere, due to its valleys & trenches. our atmosphere is what makes earth a “sphere” when looking at it from afar.
