Tiny Perfectly Scaled Replicas Of The Planets In Our Solar System

Imagining the different sizes of all the planets is pretty hard to think about it. I mean, we know Jupiter is big, but you can't really get a good idea of just how big it is without seeing it measured against something you already know the size of. This store sells perfectly scaled replicas of all the 8 planets in our solar system (sorry Pluto) so you can get a good idea of just how big each planet is.
Made by Etsy store LittlePlanetFactory, the tiny scaled planet replicas, are just one of their many offerings that feature tiny scaled planets, moons, and stars. Other cool products of theirs include a replica of Saturn's moon Titan that comes with a removable shell that represents the moon's atmosphere and layer of clouds, along with a scaled replica of the Sun, Jupiter and Earth together, with Earth being so small that you need to contain it inside of a tiny jar.
The scaled replica of the 8 planets are 3D printed with extreme amounts of details that go into each planet. The gas giants even feature their equatorial deformation to scale, and are even made with their oblate spheroid shape.
A perfect gift idea for science geeks, space lovers, or just for something to feature inside of a science class at a school, the scaled replicas of the solar systems planets come in three different sizes to choose from (at 3 different price points), the small size being scaled at 1:1.5 billion, the medium size being scaled at 1:1 billion, and the large size being scaled at 1:0.7 billion. Just select the size you want in the dropdown.
