Accurate Representations for the Aspiring Astronaut
Accurate Representations for the Aspiring Astronaut The beauty of our planets, their moons, and our Sun unfolds in these models of the solar system built to scale. Shown in relationship to each other, all planets are included and shown with the appropriate amount of empty space between each one. A laminated scale and distance chart are included to assist in accurately arranging the planets. The planets and major moons are mounted on beautifully crafted pine bases, finished in an exquisite starry night effect. Two sizes are available to best fit your space - standard and deluxe, which is twice the size of standard.
The Standard Model's sun is 26.5" in diameter; the Deluxe Model's sun is 53" in diameter.
The moons and small planets are made of steel. The mid-size planets are wood, and the large planets are made of high density, expandable polystyrene (plastic).
