Get Someone’s Mouth On Uranus With This Solar System Drinking Set

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have your friends fill up Uranus? Dream no more.

Firebox continues to release banger after cosmic banger with their products, only this time they call out to the astronaut in all of us.Screen Shot 2016-03-09 at 10.43.07 AM

This Solar System drinking set comes equipped with all 9 planets, although it includes Pluto, which is now being considered a dwarf planet and not cool enough to hang out with the other planets.

Each glass in the set comes with detailed depictions of each planet’s surface, with a particular emphasis (obviously) on the earth glass.

This set comes with 10 glasses total, with eight of them holding 10 oz. (Mercury through Neptune), a Sun glass at 16 oz., then finally a large shot glass of Pluto that will hold 4 oz.

How Big the Solar System’s Planets are Relative to Fruit Sizes

This illustration shows a pretty cool way to wrap your head around how much bigger some of the planets in our solar system are compared to others. It was created by Avi Solomon using data from BBC Two’s show “Stargazing live.”

From largest to smallest, Jupiter is represented as a watermelon, Saturn is a large grapefruit, Uranus is an apple, Neptune is a lime, Venus and Earth are cherry tomatoes, Mars is a blueberry, and Mercury is a peppercorn.

It’s still pretty messed up what they did to Pluto.
