Description:

Build a model of the Solar System in your community that people can explore by walking or biking. Put the Sun somewhere in your community. Choose a scale and draw scale orbits of the planets on a map of your neighborhood or town or city. Imagine a scale model that stretches out over your county or even a big chunk of your state.

Reality expands to fill the available fantasies. -- Laran Stardrake
