If we were to compare all of the asteroids and comets visited by various space probes as of today, how would they stack up size-wise?

Via Ted Stryk on Twitter: Ted posts:

Ultima Thule to scale with other objects in solar orbit that humanity has visited smaller than 100 km across. Emily Lakdawalla (@elakdawalla) and I did the original work, to which I added more objects to update it #UltimaThule #UltimaFlyby #MU69FLYBY

The items marked with “P” are comets.

See the original Twitter post for more information. Great work!
