TRAPPIST-1 Solar System Comparison. This diagram compares the TRAPPIST-1 planet system with Earth's solar system. The size of Earth's sun is shown with regard to the red dwarf star, TRAPPIST-1. The position of the seven planets around TRAPPIST-1 are shown in relation to Mercury's orbit around the sun.

If you take each of the Platonic Solids and encase each perfectly within a sphere, and then nest them all inside of each other, they produce six layers that correspond to the relative planetary orbits of Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.  Here are drawings representing the path of planets coupled together over several year periods, illustrating their geometric dance relationship in patters that look very similar to those made in Cymatics.

March 17,  2004: NASA'S MESSENGER ENTERS MERCURY’S ORBIT  -    NASA's Messenger becomes the first spacecraft to enter orbit around Mercury. The probe took more than 270,000 pictures before crashing into the surface of Mercury on April 30, 2015.

this article is interesting -- must research more but its presentation is quite lovely - how there is a strange symmetry in the earth and its environs...i.e. the moon and sun...

Newton's laws of motion assume the force between two objects depends on the mass and distance of each and, using this, it is possible to calculate the orbits of planets precisely (stock image). However, Mercury's orbit was found to be an exception to this rule, which Einstein's General Relativity theory accounted for

Our Solar System to Scale (I think this lesson could be easily modified for upper elementary science classes--and would make a great hook or culminating activity for a Solar System unit!)
