The size of the solar system on your screen

Stumbled upon this beautiful representation of the solar system.

It is quite difficult to explain the size of the solar system - it is clearly beyond comprehension for most ordinary people - leave alone kids. This beautiful representation shows how to make it comprehensible.

Things like this make one go a-ha.

The best thumbrule for most ideas is "Why did I not think of that" and this one gets there, by a mile.
