The Astonishing Real Scale Of Our Solar System


If you have been to science class, you would most probably come to read about our solar system. From Venus to Mercury, to our favorite red planet, Mars, these images and diagrams in our textbooks often show the multitude of planets existing close together in nice family portrait, however, in reality, they could not be farther apart.

In an attempt to show us just how far apart and spread out our solar system really is, the team at To Scale: went to a dry lake bed in Nevada, and proceeded to construct the solar system in proper scale, and the results are astounding. Take a look for yourself just how expansive and wide our solar system really is.
