Newsweek has been working with NASA to create a video from space.
This clipart is the latest installment in our series, “From Earth to the Moon: Solar System Clips from Space.”
The clipart, which we created using NASA’s Spacecraft Visualization Lab, is meant to show how the planets are formed, how the sun formed, and how Earth’s sun system is formed.
The project, called The Solar System Clipart, is being funded by NASA, the Smithsonian Institution, and the National Science Foundation.
The cliparts were created by scientists at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum and by the Smithsonian Institute’s National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, along with students from the Smithsonian College of Art and Design and from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The Smithsonian Institution is the parent institution of Smithsonian.
