1 Seattle Solar System a public art + science project concept concept by Keith Enevoldsen Jan 15,

2 Imagine that the International Fountain at Seattle Center is the Sun. How big are the planets? How far are the planets?

3

4

5 How big are the planets? Sun diameter = 30 feet. Earth diameter = 3.3 inches. Jupiter diameter = 36 inches.

6

7 Art + Science Imagine the planets as artworks placed in public places around Seattle. The sizes and distances must be to scale otherwise the artist is free to create. Teachers will find all kinds of creative ways to use these artworks to teach science and math.

8 Small Art = Inexpensive Art The big Sun artwork, the fountain, already exists no cost. The big four gas planet artworks are not very big one to three feet in diameter medium cost. The small rocky planet artworks are TINY a few inches in diameter low cost. They could be incorporated into other artworks. The whole point is to show that the diameters are SMALL and the distances LARGE.

9 How far are the planets? The inner planets are spread out from Seattle Center down the length of the Seattle Waterfront. The outer planets are spread out to the outskirts of the Seattle metropolitan area.

10 Seattle Solar System Sun diameter = International Fountain dome sphere diameter = 30 feet. Alternative: Instead of sun=30 ft (scale 1:152,231,000), we can set scale 1:150,000,000 (sun=30.54 ft). Model is almost exactly the same size either way model planets have same sizes and same locations. Data from Solar System Scale Model Calculator (based on planetary data from NASA JPL)

11 Start at the Sun, the International Fountain, and walk south. Mercury (1.3 ) is at the Pacific Science Center, home of the Willard Smith Planetarium, next to the Space Needle.

12

13 Walk down Broad Street toward the Waterfront. Venus (3.1 ) is at the Olympic Sculpture Park. Earth (3.3 ) and Moon (0.9 ) are at Pier 69.

14

15 Walk south along the Waterfront. Mars (1.8 ) is halfway down the Waterfront at Pier 62/63 future Activity Pier? Ceres (0.25 ) and the Asteroid Belt are at the end of the Waterfront at Pier 48 future Festival Pier?

16

17 Drive (or bus or bike) to the outer planets. North, south, east, or west? Let s imagine going east, following the I-90 trail. Jupiter (36 ) is at MLK Way (Milky Way). I-90 Trial Sam Smith Park Saturn (30 ) is on Mercer Island. I-90 Trail Park on the Lid

18

19 Continue east, following the I-90 trail and the Mountains to Sound Greenway. Uranus (13 ) is near Lake Sammamish. I-90 Trail Neptune (13 ) is east of Issaquah. Issaquah Creek Trail Pluto (0.6 ) and the Kuiper Belt are around Snoqualmie.

22 Location, location, location! There are many different places the planets could be located. Each planet could be in more than location, north, south, east, west, as different artworks by different artists. More art and more science! (Think Seattle Art Pigs.)

23 Mercury (1.3 ) Possible Locations Pacific Science Center / Willard Smith Planetarium Space Needle Between PSC and Space Needle at Broad Street Science Fiction Museum

24 Venus (3.1 ) Possible Locations Olympic Sculpture Park at Broad Street or in the park Elliot Bay Park

25 Earth (3.3 ) Possible Locations Waterfront at Pier 69 Elliot Bay Trail Denny Park

26 Mars (1.8 ) Possible Locations Waterfront at Bell Harbor Marina Waterfront at Pier 62/63 future Activity Pier? Victor Steinbrueck Park / Pike Place Market Elliot Bay Trail South Lake Union (east of park)

27 Ceres (0.25 ) Asteroid Belt Possible Locations Waterfront at Pier 48 future Festival Pier? Pioneer Square Volunteer Park Gas Works Park

28 Jupiter (36 ) Possible Locations Martin Luther King Jr. Way ( Milky Way ) / I-90 Trail / Sam Smith Park / Judkins Park University of Washington Arboretum / Foster Island Trail Woodland Park / Zoo / Green Lake Alki Beach

29 Saturn (30 ) Possible Locations Mercer Island / I-90 Trail / Park on the Lid / Luther Burbank Park (north end) Magnuson Park Northgate Mall Golden Gardens Lake Washington Blvd. Park, near Seward Park Columbia City Boeing Field (north end) (Museum of Flight is at the south end)

30 Uranus (13 ) Possible Locations West Lake Sammamish / I-90 Trail / Marymoor Park Mountains to Sound Greenway Cougar Mountain / Coal Creek Trail Redmond (Microsoft) Bothell (UW) Mountlake Terrace SeaTac Airport Coulon Park / Renton Airport (Boeing) East Bremerton Battle Point, Bainbridge Is. (Battle Point Astronomical Association)

31 Neptune (13 ) Possible Locations East of Issaquah / Issaquah Creek Trail Mountains to Sound Greenway Squawk Mountain (Squawk Mountain Astronomical Society) Paine Field (south end) (Boeing)

32 Pluto (0.6 ) Kuiper Belt Possible Locations Snoqualmie / North Bend / Fall City / Preston Mountains to Sound Greenway Tiger Mountain Everett (Boeing) Mukilteo Ferry Point Defiance Park, Tacoma
