I asked the creator of this site to shed some light on why he made “Distance to Mars”. He said that the concept came from a couple of different inspirations, sparked by his friend Jesse sending over a video by pastor Louis Giglio about the scale of the universe.

“It jogged my memory of a physics demo back at school on the playing field, something like the distance between planets in the solar system if one was a marble and the other a basketball, that sort of thing. I thought it might be neat to make that into a little narrative that got the point across in a way people were used to: getting bored of scrolling down really long webpages.”

“The original intention for the site was a quick, one-or-two day project that I could put together to learn more about web design (coming from more of a video/animation background) – really, this is the first ‘proper’ website I’ve made apart from my personal page – and have a nice little site to send to friends and around work when it was done.”

As with any other successful project, this one too required several 1 AM fixing to correct some errors in the math.

Jesse Williams made the planets and gave some ideas for the visual direction.
