Cool Video Shows Vast Distance Between Planets with To-Scale Timelapse of Solar System
Space may be the final frontier, but have you ever stopped to consider just how much space is between our planet earth and the our neighboring planets? Let's just say, it's a lot-- as this video shows.
The video's creator noticed that while we've all seen pictures that show how big the sun is when compared to our little earth, there was never a picture big enough to show the distance between the planets to scale. Turns out, you need a pretty big space-- like seven miles of open space.
So, he trucked out to the Nevada desert and went about setting up this cool video that shows the planets-- and the incredible distance between them-- to scale. Check it out...
