The Solar System to Scale (videos)

On a dry lakebed in Nevada, a group of friends build the first scale model of the solar system with complete planetary orbits: a true illustration of our place in the universe.

I am reminded of this old clip from Bill Nye the Science guy:

And another. This one also demonstrates the distance to the nearest star, Alpha Centari.

I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of demonstrations of our solar system’s scale. I love it all.
