What? According to this article on a site called io9, you can fit all of the planets in the Solar System in the space between Earth and its Moon. I thought to myself "....No way. Jupiter alone will cover that distance..." Upon reading the calculations it seems to be correct.
Planet Average Diameter (km)
The average distance from the Earth to the Moon is 384,400 km. And check it out, that leaves us with 4,392 km to spare.
It's important to note that Earth itself isn't included in this calculation, so you can fit all of the planets in the Solar system between the Earth and the Moon, except for Earth itself. Wow, this really changes my perspective if correct.
