We in the textbook, the network seen countless model of the solar system, beautiful, very spectacular, but in fact, they are wrong. Space really is too vast, and to the planet itself volume ratio, we usually compressed tracks spacing, and if accurate rendering of the proportion of the orbit, the planet itself and small can not see.
Even if there is only one earth marbles so big, according to the actual scale of the solar system will have nearly ten km diameter.
Sweden is a world's largest permanent solar system model, fully in accordance with the real volume of planets, orbital distance setting. 1:20000000 scale, is this also almost across the whole land in Sweden, "Neptune" distance "Earth" 229 kilometers, 300 kilometers "Pluto", "asteroid 90377" reached 912 kilometers. As far as the termination shock "950 kilometers.
But it is too big, the average person is very difficult to panoramic experience.
2014. Wylie Overstreet and his friends spent a day at a time, in the Sierra Nevada dry lake bed, according to the actual proportion of painting out of the solar system, including the sun and the eight planets (Pluto).
In this "solar system", the nearest mercury orbit is 68 meters, the earth is 176 meters, and the most distant Neptune is 5.6 kilometers.In the real world, they are 57000000 kilometers, 150000000 kilometers, 4500000000 kilometers, and 5910000000 kilometers of pluto.
They also drove the car, and used the lights to simulate the operation of the solar system, and used the time delay to record the whole process of 36 hours.
If you want to experience this crazy shock,Can look at this website.
In addition to the "body" in a paragraph:
"Who can think of, we have a day to face such a battle map." Chang Weisi is facing a one hundred billion of the solar system space map. Display a large screen space, the area is equivalent to a movie wide screen, but the screen is almost black, but in the middle of a small yellow bright spot, it is the sun. Graph space range is based on the offset Baiyi belt line as the boundary, a full-size display, to from the perpendicular to the ecliptic plane 50 astronomical units from afar to see the solar system. The space map is precisely the orbit of the planet and the planet's orbit, as well as the present situation of the asteroid belt. In the next one thousand years, all the time section of the solar system can be accurately displayed. The space map is now closed to the position of the celestial body. Shows the true brightness. If you look closely, perhaps can find Jupiter, but only an indistinct small bright spot, in the distance, seven other planets are not.
"Yes, we are facing a big change." Zhang Beihai said. The identification of the first edition of spatial graph has just ended, now, the broad war room only two people and he often winsis.
"Chief, I do not know that you have to pay attention to the comrades in the face of this picture when the eyes do not?" The North sea.
"Of course, note, you can understand, they will certainly put the space in the pre science painting, a number of billiard size of color planets around the sun's big ball of fire to see the true scale of the space map, only to feel the sun. Whether the air force or navy, they are able to sail or fly the farthest distance on this screen even a pixel size can not be. I feel that they are facing the future of the battlefield, not showing a bit of confidence and the passion of fighting......."
