The Solar System to Scale & Delayed Day 2
Apologies for the delay in Day 2 of Space Camp this week. Ran into some time management issues.
Instead, watch this video of Alex Gorosh and Wylie Overstreet building a scale model of the solar system in the desert (with the Earth as a marble. They needed 7 miles to put all the planets around the sun. It's amazing.)
What really strikes me about this video is 1) the scale, when you realize it, and 2) what the Apollo astronauts have to say about the view of Earth from the Moon. It's awe-inspiring, almost overwhelming, and just amazing.
FYI: I saw this originally as part of an article at thisiscolossal.com.
