Solar System In A Bottle: Wonderful Miniature Planets, Made To The Correct Scale
By Dorothy Tan, 14 Apr 2017
Model-maker Little Planet Factory 3D-prints “miniature planets and other astronomy themed curiosities” so that you can hold the vastness of the universe in the palm of your hand.
A particularly popular product of theirs is the ‘Solar System in a Bottle’, which contains wonderful miniatures of all eight planets in our solar system, from Mercury to Jupiter.
Made at a scale of 1:5,000,000,000, the small bottle is dominated by the four gigantic gas planets, dwarfing the four solid planets, which appears almost “dust like”.
Unfortunately, Little Planet Factory has stopped taking orders until then end of May 2017 due to high demand—in the meantime, you may want to check out its other products here.
