Solar System Visual.ly

Solar System Visual.ly

The Solar System is very complicated. A classic science project is to create a
representation of the Solar System, but it is nearly impossible to create a
fully accurate representation. According to this infographic, the sun would be
the size of a large bouncy ball, the largest planet, Saturn, would be the size of
a marble, and the rest of the planets would be around the size of a grain of sand.
On top of that, planets are varying distances apart, and travel at drastically different speeds.

This infographic gives a great, accurate, demonstration on the speed, size, and
distance of each planet. There are three options that can be flipped through,
that show how different the planets are.
