    I am Not referring to this one http://www.aem.umn.edu/images/planets.jpg which is rather lovely.

    Instead the one which shows the actual distance of planets and size.
    and you end up scroooooooooolling like mad.
    and feel very very lonely.
    Thank you in advance.

    For the sake of science.

    Great research Tesco & Fishy2. Bravo.
    Thank you heartedly.
    I will use those in my dad to son explanation that ants do not necessarily need to be squashed speech.
    However
    the one i seek, was hot all over the interwebs a while back.
    It was one so massive you gave up scrolling past the moon.
    Maybe interactive.
    I tried but can not find.

    I have to compete against star wars.
    My only other option is camping, fire & all the surrounds us.

    Here is a video showing what the pics (above) do:

    And a couple of "Powers of 10" video showing distance:






    Hope these are of some use to you. Good luck with the presentation!

    http://www.panoptikum.net/sonnensystem/solarsystem.htm This may be the website you mean. Check the "Show Solar System True to Scale!" link on it.

    If you've some time and inclination, you can make a pretty cool scale model over the distance of ~1km.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t
