The Solar System: True Scale #SaturdayMorningCartoons #SolarEclipse
This isn’t a cartoon. But with all the the talk of #solareclipse2017, we started to wonder about the true scale of the celestial bodies involved in this rare event, because the scale will help us understand just how special it all is.
This video from To Scale is the most beautiful Earthbound depiction of the scale of our solar system we’ve found. Check it out. Really great work here.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
