Pretty Dismal: What The New York City Skyline Would Look Like On The Other Planets Of Our Solar System

May 16, 2013


This is a series of artistic renderings imagining what the New York City skyline would look like if it existed in the atmospheres of the other planets in our solar system. I put them in order from closest to furthest from the sun, but in case you forgot, that's:


It's easy to remember because the first letter of each planet forms the word MVEMJSUN, and SUN is the name of our star and MVEMJ is...I don't know what the hell MVEMJ is. It would make a terrible name for a band though, I can tell you that. Also, I know what you're thinking, and I'm with you -- I think it's time we accept Pluto is no longer a planet and let it go. All this time hoping something would change has been like peeling a Band-Aid off in slow-motion, and we can't keep doing that to ourselves. "I agree, it's time to move on." Why you filthy little traitor! THAT WAS A TEST AND YOU FAILED.

    That Earth one is full of shit. The skyline of NYC is never that clear and smog-free, and where are the dead hookers floating in the harbor?

    So it would look like a city in China if it was on Venus.

    Pluto isn't a planet for the same reason that neither the Earth nor the Sun are the center of the Universe.
    New information is learned and things get reclassified. It's not like your great great great great grandkids can't visit Walt Disneys' "Pluto on Pluto" theme park in 2343

    thank you! man that bitching about Pluto everywhere is getting fucking annoying! start bitching about why Pluto the dog has to have a leash and gets treated like a dumb dog while Goofy the mentally challenged dog isn't treated as so.

  • That's not what Uranus would look like. First, it's -224 degrees celsius so everything would be frozen solid, second of all the density of methane and hydrocarbons would not allow you to make out that much detail even near the surface, and third I've seen Uranus and it's filled with dicks.

    Minus 10 points for not including Pluto, because fuck scientists, Pluto will always be a planet to me!

  • Eric Stodolnik

    these are ugly as hell.
