This amazing composite image, created by redditor jamesgreddit, shows Earth to scale inside Saturn's rings. And it puts into perspective just how mind-meltingly tiny we really are in the grand scheme of things.

Saturn's rings, which are made up mostly of chunks of ice clumped together, span around 65,700 kilometres, but are also incredibly thin - just 10 metres in width at the narrowest points, and up to a kilometre at the widest. The Earth's diameter, for comparison, is 12,742 kilometres.

If you find that impressive, consider the fact that all the planets in the Solar System could fit in the space between the Earth and the Moon (although, there may be two new ones to discover, new research suggests).

And just in case you were wondering what the it would look like if Saturn's rings really were orbitting us, here are some incredible images from Ron Miller showing just that.
