Remember those 3-D printed planets of the solar system available from Etsy shop LittlePlanetFactory? Well now they're back with a much more moderately priced solar system, this time in the form of a 1:5-billion scale model that comes in a small jar. And it only costs around $37! That's pretty cheap for a solar system not made out of painted sytrofoam balls hanging from a clothes hanger. "Is that the entire solar system in your pocket or just Uranus?" Huh? "Is that the--" I liked you better when you were sober.

Keep going for a couple more shots.

  • Dao

    The perfect gift for those with delusions of God-like grandeur.

  • NutSpark

    I would have sworn our solar system had a star

  • Bling Nye

    Those will all fit in your butt, and/or your urethra.

    Or you could just label the bottle URANUS and call it a day.

  • Draco Basileus

    That deserves a URANUS rimshot.

  • I don't know why I find this so cool, but this is so cool. (Not $40 worth of cool though)
