Product Description
The documents describe various scale models that I have discussed with students in my classes. The models are the Solar System, the Earth, Milky Way, the Universe and the Atom. In each case, it turns out that it is impossible to create a scale model, as distances and sizes are out of proportion to each other: for example, if you have a scale model in which the Earth can be seen clearly, its orbit becomes too large!
