How Big Is The Solar System?
(Hint: Really big)
I took a trip to one of Austin’s famous moontowers so I could put the enormity of our solar system into perspective. With the help of a grapefruit, and a lot of walking, you’ll get an idea of just how tiny everything is out there!!
Do it yourself! Calculate sizes and distances, and then make your own solar system model using this calculator.
I’m serious about that part, make your own and send them to me! I’ll feature them here on the blog so everyone can see your crafty science awesomeness.
