At one time, Bill Nye the Science Guy did this on his show. The Sun was
represented by a basketball. Mercury was a pinhead about 2/3 way down a
football field. After Mars, he had to get on a bicycle, because the scale
was no longer a comfortable walk... if you can find this show, it is an
excellent graphic demonstration of the Scale of Things...
