New illustration of the solar system!

Postby rstevenson » Wed Mar 22, 2017 9:50 pm

I just found this on the web, the source of all things good and truthful.

Apparently it's been in use for some time as part of a science primer course for NBA players, since as everyone knows, said players didn't spend much time studying no matter how long they stayed in school. Some versions of this are credited to "the Shaq" but I'm fairly certain that's a misattribution. If anyone here knows more about this image, please chime in with your suggestions.

Dr. Shaq (Ed.D., in Leadership in Education with a specialization in Human Resource Development) forgot to mention them. Perhaps I'll email him and ask.

Well, anything goes on the web.

Perhaps the new illustration of the solar system fits in right next to the giant Noah's Ark in Kentucky.

That can be a nice restaurant if they add Windows and of course a lot of peoples living around. May be they can move it near a city. I think it will be more usefull.

It could be the start of a chain of restaurants. This first one could be called The Restaurant At The End Of The Earth. Later there could be one out around Pluto called The Restaurant At The End Of The Solar System. Later still...
