Planetary Models

During our Astronomy unit we will be creating the planets of the solar system in scale on Cheetah 3D. Using the provided textures, you will make use the information below to make a model of your planet using spheres.

Pay particular attention to the "Diameter" because this is the size that each of your planets needs to be.

Also note that while the planets you are creating are to scale, their distance is NOT. In reality, each planet is incredibly far away from the other, but because we want to compare sizes, our model is compact.
