On this scale, where would the next closest star be? Would it even fit on earth?
**Figured it out**
**tl;dr** - No, the next closest star would not fit on Earth at this scale
At this scale, Earth is 579ft from the Sun. The next closest star is Alpha Centuri, some 25.67 trillion miles away (or roughly 300,000 times the distance from Earth to Sun).
579ft * 300,000 = 32,898 miles
The circumference of Earth is 24,901 miles. The furthest point on Earth is only 12,450 miles away. So even if you wrapped around the Earth back to the Black Rock Desert, you'll still need to go another 7,997 miles to place Alpha Centuri on the model. (Roughly the distance from Black Rock Desert, NV, USA to Central Australia.)
