Stand Amazed At Great Height Humanity Has Traveled With This Infographic

Illustration and Infographic via Fly to Dubai

We stand impressed, amazed even, at your exhausting amount of miles traveled. However, there is always someone who will have you beat.

That’s what we gleaned from the amazing infographic that follows thanks to Fly to Dubai, which chronicles man’s push to the upper regions of space.

Whether that is scaling Burj Khalifa, climbing Mount Everest or manning the International Space Station, humanity has taken its love of travel and exploration to unbelievable heights.

That is just one of the many things racing through our own minds as we take in this graphic:

Fly to Dubai prides itself on being the “largest offshore travel Group within the British Isles.”

More recently, it gave us something remarkable to contemplate. Via the website: “We keep pushing the boundaries to fly higher, faster and in ways never achieved before; we’ve created explosions where the mushroom clouds reached the mesosphere, orbited the earth countless times, flown above every type of known weather, put satellite after satellite into space, landed men on the moon, put a rover on mars..."

Perhaps you can enjoy this little nugget as you stare contemplatively outside your airplane window, headed on that vacation or arduous business trip.

Whether it’s leaving the house to try that new restaurant down the block or preparing to reach deeper into space, humanity seems destined to continue its pursuit of the unknown.

That’s something we travel aficionados can appreciate rather well.
