ModelPlan 197


Michael Whiting's


Keplerian Solar Systems



This ModelPlan describes the construction of Meccano models representing three of the Extra-Solar systems so far detected by the Kepler Space Telescope launched in March 2009 - Kepler 11, Kepler 16 and Kepler 20.


The models are the ideal ‘coffee table’ size, have no  overhead gantries, and use standard Meccano gears and vary the size of the modelled planets to give an indication of their relative sizes


The normal aim of accuracy to within 1% is maintained.  No figures for the rotation periods of the various stars are available so sensible guesstimates have been used.
