From planets to electrons, forces pulling toward a central point create the rounds that make up our universe. It is all relative. At The Rose Center, the scale of objects in the universe can be measured against the 87-foot diameter Hayden Sphere. Where the Sphere represents the Sun, Jupiter is 9-feet in diameter, Saturn's rings are 17-feet and Earth is the size of a grapefruit. So how big are you, looking up at Jupiter from the surface of a grapefruit?
