Ever wonder how far the NASA astronauts traveled when they were hoofing it around the moon? How about the amount of ground they covered relative to the size and shape of the average Major League Baseball diamond? No? Didn't think so.

Nevertheless, as part of the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11, NASA produced exactly such a map. A little random, but very cool:

If you squint, it kind of looks like the path Chris Duncan takes when fielding a routine pop-up.
