It's the Friday video post! To Scale: The Solar System

When I think of the cosmos, I am blown away by the fact that it is so unimaginably vast. This video does a brilliant job of demonstrating how huge our solar system is, and is beautifully shot to boot.

I thought it was interesting that they only went as far as Neptune. Presumably they would need an even larger area to include Pluto (technically no longer officially a major player in our solar system since being downgraded to a dwarf planet).
