3D Printed w/Space Related for the holidays

One of the users in our local hackerspace received internet attn. from CNet.

''So the aerospace engineer and industrial designer thought he'd use his own talents to make his own special tree.
It's white, you'll notice. This serves as an interesting backdrop for ornaments such as the Superman logo.
Burhop's used the Solidoodle 3D printer to make something that every visitor will surely marvel at.
 
He seems to like space related items and many were printed on his 3D Printer.
After 4 min. on the video it gets interesting.

found a few space related items to print off the thingiverse: http://www.thingiverse.com/challenges

Our Planets - Ornaments
"They are simply spheres with posts, other than Saturn's ring, to mimic classic Christmas tree ornaments but represent our planets to scale. "


Find this one very interesting and maybe workable into a year round pint of the Planets.
