Scaled model of the Solar System on Nevada Desert

On a dry lake bed in Nevada, United States, a group of friends built the first scale model of the solar system with complete planetary orbits: a true illustration of our place in the universe. They constructed the model by drawing circles in the desert: they put a 1.5 meter (in diameter) Sun in the center, and draw the planets around it with the scale. The result is stunning.
