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.

You guys like Saturn, right? Here’s a whole gallery of Saturn GIFs, from rings to moons, captured by the Cassini spacecraft. They’re part modern art and part science.

Next to the Voyager twins, I think Cassini might be the best satellite NASA ever launched. Certainly takes the best pictures. Tumblr’s own staceythinx  has an iPad app called Cassini HD that features even more photos, plus color, plus science.

QUICK TURN ON DANCING WITH THE STARS AND DONT PAY ATTENTION SO THIS WILL GO AWAY.
