25 Worlds of the Solar System

at One 10-Billionth Actual Size

This large, exquisite crystal block reproduces all 25 worlds found in the Voyage model Solar System exhibition at exactly one 10-billionth actual size. Eight planets, two dwarf planets, and 15 moons are laser-sculpted in 3D inside the solid crystal block, and are presented gracefully, and in size order, against the edge of the Sun. The highly accurate model worlds include the oblateness of Jupiter and Saturn, the orientations in space of the planetary ring systems, and the ring structure. It is interesting to note that the moons Ganymede and Titan are larger than the planet Mercury, that 4 moons are larger than the dwarf planet Eris, and five moons are larger than the dwarf planet Pluto. Take the Voyage home!
