This display creates a scaled model of the solar system, containing representations of the planets and display information related to each. By generating excitement about learning, research and exploration, the space will be useful for teachers, students and visitors. It will serve as both a reminder of Purdue University’s connection to NASA and space exploration and as an inspiration for students to pursue a career in science, technology, engineering and math. Its size and scale allows students to visually compare the planets’ sizes and their relationship to each other and the sun.
