F’reals. Stop everything and watch this gorgeous short film, “To Scale: The Solar System,” in which a duo of dudes create a to-scale replica of the solar system in a beautiful desert lakebed in Nevada. It’s gorgeous and dreamy and nerdy and everything we want it to be.
The thing about the sun at the five minute mark? Mind: blown. Science!

On a dry lakebed in Nevada, a group of friends build the first scale model of the solar system with complete planetary orbits: a true illustration of our place in the universe.
