Nowadays the human impact on our planet can hardly be underestimated. Climate change, plastic islands, genetic manipulation – ‘We were here’ echoes all over. Yet, every now and then it is good to realize how much of the universe is still untouched and unexplored by human presence.

Warning: playing with the interactive infographic created by Number Sleuth may result in profound feelings of modesty and insignificance.

Amazing. Reminds me of IBM's classic 'the powers of ten'.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
