Wondering if scale might be off by factor of 10 or so?

7000 miles is approx diameter of the whole planet Venus, correct?

So, umm, 2*Pi*3500 is approx 22,000 miles circumference.

Yet at 500 miles/hex that peninsula we are going to visit is about 7000 miles east to west - approx 1/3 circumference of planet? Is that correct?

Not arguing, just checking, as that seems a large area of responsibility. Like, "Oh, just fly down and survey North America for us, please."


EDIT: Also, checking Conklin's, I see a peninsula of about this shape lying abt 700 miles south of Fort Collingswood...

EDIT 2: Ah, I think I found the source map, on p.23 of Conklin's. If I read the map scale correctly, those are 100 mile hexes, not 500.
