In the video, made by Alex Gorosh and Wylie Overstreet, they explain that using representations of the planets above a microscopic level requires your model to be rather huge. With this in mind, the team ventured out to Black Rock Desert in Nevada to give it a go.
The result is a rather spectacular idea of what the Solar System looks like in real life. Plus it shows how small our planet really is in the grand scheme of things. Prepare to weep at your own insignificance.
Staggering. When you hear on the news that it takes 50+ years to get somewhere, your brain struggles to comprehend exactly how far that really is. Seeing in the sands of the Black Rock Desert make it a lot more tangible for me. Hopefully it has done the same for you guys too.
