Planets Orbit Across A 7-Mile Scale Model Of The Solar System

The only way to see a model of the solar system, where all proportion is truly to scale is to build one. Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh have created one on the sands of Nevada’s Black Rock Desert.

This miniature solar system is spread over seven miles, and in it, Earth is only the size of a small marble.
