Do you know how big the solar system is? It’s really difficult to imagine because the orders of magnitude are so enormous. Can you guess how big or small the planets are? Even with accurate data, it’s really hard to visualise something so far away. On this imaginative 5K walk the solar system is scaled down to a manageable size to give you a better idea of just how much space there is…..in space!
Reading the easy instructions is no substitute for getting out there and walking the distance. So boldy go…to get your boots on….and take your own voyage of discovery from the Sun to Pluto.
This map was first exhibited at the ‘On the map’ exhibition at the Sunbury Embroidery Gallery, Sunbury-on-Thames in 2015.
