See A Perfect Seven Mile Model Of Our Solar System


Want to see a scale of the solar system, this video below can show it to you!  In To Scale: The Solar System filmmakers Alex Gorosh and Wylie Overstreet spent 36 hours meticulously creating a seven-mile-wide scale model of the Sun and eight planets of the Solar System in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. The model uses a model of the Earth the size of a marble and correctly scales both the sizes and distances of the planets from the Sun.  You also get to see time-lapse footage of cars with mounted lights driving the scale orbits of the planets in the desert, enjoy!
