A gigantic time-lapse of 10km in diameter to recreate to scale the solar system

2015-09-17 // unusual videos

To create a scale model of the solar system, its planets and their orbits, Alex Gorosh and Wylie Overstreet decided to use as a starting point a simple marble to represent the Earth. Which led them to create a gigantic time-lapse of 10 km in diameter, in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, with in its center a Sun measuring 1.5 meter and with Neptune orbiting 5.6 km away! A very interesting experiment to better understand the real size of the solar system.
