To Scale: The Solar System from Wylie Overstreet on Vimeo.

This short movie by Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh shows the planets in our solar system and the orbits to scale.

It truely is amazing to stand back and take a moment to see how the world, and even the universe works.

Alex Rowe Gorosh would have been a great ship captain. Beyond his ability to acquire technical skills, Alex is a hard worker, a good listener and a solid leader. Morale would remain high, even in uncharted territories and stormy seas. 

Alex would have been a great captain but instead he channels his leadership skills into filmmaking expeditions. Along with an eye for stunning imagery and an ear for storytelling, he brings compassion and commitment to every project.

Wylie Overstreet is  a writer and makes films about nature and science, and how our growing understanding of the cosmos continues to transform both our civilization and our deepest notions of who we are. Wylie believe this understanding is the greatest achievement of humankind, and our future now depends squarely upon whether we nurture and heed it.
