The Planets Are Very, Very, Very Far Away: A Journey Through the Amazing Scale of the Solar System

by Mike Vago Author

In this myth-busting fold-out book, author Mike Vago shows the reader just how big space really is. Using math and an unconventional book design, Vago depicts our solar system to scale. A 100,000,000,000-to-1 scale, to be precise. Enthusiastic young astronomers will enjoy learning about where exactly in the solar system we find ourselves, and readers of all ages will feel small in comparison to the vastness of the universe.
