A really cool solar system scale graphic by 3D artist Roberto Ziche (via Bob’s Spaces)
I don’t think I’ve ever seen the solar system displayed in this way; the 3D rendering really adds to the sense of scale. I’d like to visit Saturn someday.
An interesting model of our solar system’s path as it travels through space in the Milky Way.
Certainly a departure from usual models that show the Sun as a static object, which it certainly isn’t
This is badass.
This is perfect. I wish I knew where I could find the original video. It looks like it could be a NOVA animation, as it is very high quality.
Thinking of the solar system in this way is very satisfying for me. I can’t really explain it, but staring at this just makes me feel calm. We’re all just along for the ride.
I really like this desktop (from my favorite source of desktop pictures).
This was well worth the carpal tunnel syndrome I developed from all the scrolling.
