do you ever look at pictures of the Earth and moon on google images they are really close to each other. when in actual fact if you get a moon a size of 1 mm by 1 mm and an earth the size of a marble then they would have to be 1 m away to actually line up with the scale . it is the same thing with the solar system . the images look so close to each other an it is not up to scale. if you put the orbits of the planets up to scale on a piece of paper then the planets would be microscopic. here is actually not an image that shows you accurately what it is like from up there in space. the only way to see a scale model of the solar system is too build 1. to build an accurate scale of the solar system you need 7 miles (11.2 km) of land and the earth a size of a marble. the sun will be 1.5 m y 1.5 m. mercury would be smaller then a marble and 68 m away from the sun. Venus is the same size as the Earth and 120 m away from the sun . the Earth is the size of a marble and 176 m away from the sun .mars is smaller than Earth and is 269 m away from the sun. Jupiter is the biggest planet in our solar system an dis 920 m away from the sun. Saturn is a planet with a ring around it and is 1.7 km from the sun. Uranus is a planet that is the 3 rd largest planet in our solar system and it is 3.4 km away from the sun. Neptune is the coldest planet in our solar system and it is 5.6 km away from the sun. how to tell that your model is correct is to hold up the model sun, go to the Earths orbit and it should match the size of the re sun from the Earths perspective. i understand that only 24 human species in the Earths entire history have sen the full circle of the Earth. why is Earth the only planet hat has life on it in our solar system.
