In the fall of 2014, Wylie Overstreet convinced four friends to travel to a dry lakebed in Nevada and help him build a full, three dimensional scale model of the solar system complete with planetary orbits (the only way to see what our place in the cosmos actually looks like). Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh did an excellent job at demonstrating how extremely large our solar system is, something a great many of us don't understand. On a dry lake bed in Nevada they built the first ever scale model of the solar system with complete planetary orbits: a true illustration of our place in the universe. Reminds us of Carl Sagan's famous.. " Pale blue dot", doesn't it?
Here is a awesome example of how education should be engaging happened when a scientist called Carl Sagan also happened to be a poet, because he just did not teach us about Cosmos he helped us to progress as a society he changed how we think.
