    One of my favorite sites ...

    is The Exploratorium. Here is a link to one of their pages. The title is "Build a Solar System". There is a scale calculator in which you enter the size of the Sun and the program calculates the scale and the sizes and distances of everything else. It even calculates a scale value for the speed of light and distances to other stars and galaxies.

    There are links to other very interesting sites such as weight on other planets and existing model solar systems.

    The URL for this page is:

    Have fun!!!
