People who see the world and say “why not” make life so much more exciting!

Today, we introduce you to some of those “why not” people, and a beautiful project they undertook in the Nevada desert.

It’s hard for anybody to fathom the true scale of our solar system.  And seeing our little blue planet out there in space is a privilege very few have had.

This is where the creators we are celebrating today come in!

In order to truly illustrate our place in the scale of the universe, Wylie Overstreet, Alex Gorosh, and a group of friends decided to build the first scale model of the solar system in the desert complete with full planetary orbits.

The final product is a beautiful reminder of our place in the universe!

Behind the Scenes…

I love watching behind the scenes videos from projects like this!

It’s so wonderful to remember that the people undertaking something this amazing are real (albeit very driven) people.

It makes me so happy to know I share our little dot in the solar system with people like this!

People who see something that has never been done before and decide to take on that challenge (and share it with the world).

We need to celebrate these kinds of creators!

Stay beautiful & keep laughing!
