Nevada desert home to Solar System!

A couple of scientists decided to actually create a scale model of our Solar System, and did so in the Nevada Desert in U.S.A.

Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh created a scale of 176 m to 1 Astronomical Unit (AU), and created the orbital path of plants and celestial bodies around the Sun.

To validate their experiment, they also created a time lapse video showing each orbit.
