A Sun, Jupiter & Earth to scale to each other.
This set that can be used to showcase the extreme difference in scale between our star, the largest of the gas giants and our homeworld.
This set has been scaled such that the Earth is represented by a mere 1mm blue sphere while Jupiter is about 10mm across. Even so made to scale the Sun towers above the two objects as an 109mm globe.
- 1mm Earth inside a tiny bottle.
- 10mm Jupiter
- 109mm Sun
The scale factor is 1:12,740,000,000. Placed at the correct to scale distance as well one would have to place Earth about 11.7 meters away from the Sun, whereas Jupiter would need to be placed about 61.1 meters away.
