8 Planet Motorized Orrery The Solar System Model 


.Few things are as captivating as an orrery. First, the craftsmanship required to build this remarkable mechanical model is of the highest order. And like a globe, an orrery also serves a practical function. It shows you the relative positions of the planets in the solar system during a given year and month,Mercury, Venus (Venus will rotate retrograde), Earth, Mars, Jupiter, etc. all revolve around the sun at different speeds according to specific physical laws.
.Design and build custom brass orreries from scratch. The artwork is of such exceptional quality that it shines with pure gold.The base of the orrery is 10 in diameter. The height of the orrery is approximately 19. The centre of Pluto will span to approximate 18 plus Pluto's moons so the total reach would be closer to 20". The Sun is turned from brass bar. The Earth is ink printed onto sandstone (I have these made for me) and the planets are painted wooden spheres.
.The clockmakers George Graham and Thomas Tompion designed and built the first modern orrery in 1704, but astronomers and naturalists have been studying the movement of the planets for thousands of years:Through the operating planetary instrument of the solar system, teachers and students, parents and children share astronomy knowledge and tell about our solar system, the 8 planets, the laws of operation, and the characteristics of different planets.
.When charged the mechanism is set in motion and the wheels are spinning.This models are high quality and very rewarding, but they are different from other metal model kits and even experienced modelers find there is a learning curve.
.Gift Idea Or Collection Hobby: 3D puzzle is a perfect gift to say love your creativity.A very ideal present for special occasions or just to share with your family for a fun bonding activity. Additionally, it?s a great option for collectible items. Classy decorations for living room, bedroom, offices, etc.
