Let's see our Solar System in a true scale model

Two space lovers traveled to the Black Rock desert in Nevada and tried to make a picture of our Solar System. With incredible imagination they managed to create a scale model of the Solar System using only the amount of marbles and the light bulb.

As quoted from Russia Times, Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh not forget to make the documentation of their projects. They claimed to be moved to create a 'solar' is because they feel uncomfortable with the idea circulating now by comparison distance of the planet that is not appropriate.

Wylie Overstreet said, "You could say there is no decent picture illustrates what is actually visible from outer space." According to the two friends were the only way to create an original scale model is to make it yourself.

Upon arriving at the bottom of the lake that mengering-- Black Rock desert in Nevada, they spent 36 hours to menkreasikan model of the solar system, complete with lights as animated rotation of planets in the night.

Then they will create time lapse recording that tells how much of the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.
“To create a scale model with an Earth only as big as this marble, you need seven miles [11kms] of empty space,” Overstreet said in the film. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/1MjsTyx)
In the video, Wylie Overstreet explained that in order to create the earth represented a marble, it takes an empty space area of ​​11 kilometers. The real challenge is how to describe the planet Earth as seen by an astronaut.
Wylie Overstreet explained in closing, "That's what I want to do and explain. We are at a marble in the middle of absence. When confronted with the fact it-- it really surprised." *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | RUSSIAN TIMES]
