A map of the solar system to scale... scroll using the middle mouse button. Be prepared to sit a while... turns out the solar system is pretty big.

You can also just click the starsigns at the top and it'll rapidly move you to the next planet ;)

But then you kinda lose track of just how incredibly far you have to scroll, which was the whole point of the thing :P

I enjoyed that very much! Than you for sharing.  It really puts perspective into how insignificant and small we are.
