// To Scale: The Solar System //

It’s kinda mind-boggling trying to imagine the magnitude of the solar system, but this short video by Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh attempts to give us an opportunity to do just that. Shot on a dry lakebed in Black rock City, Nevada, these 2 lads and a group of friends built the first scale model of the solar system with complete planetary orbits in order to portray “a true illustration of our place in the universe.” Beautifully shot and explained in a way for us non-scientifically-minded folk to understand, it’s worth the watch if you have 7 minutes up your sleeve!
