A bunch of buddies in Nevada claims they’ve developed a rare strategy to present what the dimensions of our photo voltaic system is.
Author and filmmaker Wylie Overstreet and his friend, filmmaker Alex Gorosh, created a scale model of the solar system, including the orbits of each planet.
Acknowledging the size of solar program is as well as having the great miles which typically differentiate the moon, means what others come across a challenge to realize.
Overstreet and Gorosh documented their project in a seven-minute film called To Scale: The Solar System.
Two amateur filmmakers decided to build a scale model of the solar system to have a better understanding of the actual size of space.
5th grader solar system space project on a TV screen made with school materials. They intended to build this in order to help formulate the calculation of the major planets in the solar system alongside their orbits which makes it a little easier to understand.
On this picture taken from the YouTube video, you’ll be able to see the orbits of the interior planets to scale.
The scale was based on Earth having a size of a marble, which was orbiting around a sun, which was a meter in a half in diameter, with the reality of the distances quite staggering.
In the scale model Mercury, Venus and Earth are, respectively, 224 feet, 447 feet and 579 feet away from the Sunday. Irwin said, “As we got farther and farther away, the Earth diminished in size”. Here’s an incredible try at displaying how amazingly large and delightful this universe is. The sizes and distances are scaled according to 1:20 million.
The model also leaves out a good portion of the solar system. Using their cars, they traced each of the planet’s orbit around the sun in a dry lakebed and then lighted up the planets before going to the top of the nearby mountain at night to capture the video of their work.
