Made this idea for a world-building plan Johannes Kepler, the young math teachers against their will, who would prefer to become a theologian, and then it was the greatest astronomer of modern times, in 1596 she shot to fame: He switched the five Platonic solids (in this case, the Wikipedia entry to) such as a spacer between the orbits of the planets, that its size was sufficient to explain exactly what was then state of knowledge.
His book, he added the famous copper engraving, which still adorns every history of astronomy (the general view here, here, the interior). To date, the model was never built, with a few exhibits, including the planetarium in the Deutsches Museum in Munich.
Kepler would have had his great joy because today, 510 years after the publication of his book, a three-dimensional model is available, the beauty and the harmonious balance of these fascinating and vivid idea of ??direct experience makes.
A delicious gift, actually a must for any lover of astronomy!
