I am delighted to be able to say that the Alpha Centauri monument — purely hypothetical when this story takes place, as well as when it was scripted & photographed — has, in the past decade, been built. It's there, in Hawaii. I haven't ever been, it I hope to some day. In the meantime, the Science Center's page on the monument is here:

In 2007, when this story takes place (it was written in 2006), there was, in fact, no asteroid monument in the Sagan Planet Walk. Since then one has been added: it's not microscopic because it departs from the usual format of 'standard-sized window containing to-scale planet'. Actually it contains a bit of a real-live asteroid, which is cool. But the conversation reflects the reality at the time the comic was written & during which the story is set.

I like that this astronomical-centered page — more of the Planet Walk from last time: it'll continue for the rest of this chapter, i.e. quite a number of pages (they've got to get all the way to Pluto, after all!) — is coming out the day of the U.S. total eclipse (here in Ithaca, a 70% eclipse).

It wasn't planned this way; it's just... Happenstance.

But I like it.

The Sagan Planet walk, which is featured in the sequence beginning on page 45, is, of course, a real place:
