If you're having a hard time visualizing just how deep in the ground the Chilean mine workers were, know that you weren't alone.

Website Cockeyed has put together this webpage, which allows you to scroll down and experience the depth of the mine at a scale of 1 pixel per inch (39 pixels per meter). Happy scrolling.
