    Hey, I'd like a big, hi resolution picture/diagram of the solar system, that shows pictures of the planets and the asteroid belt etc.

    Cheers, Gab

    NASA/JPL's Solar System Simulator does not show the asteroid belt per se, but it does show Vesta (one of the largest asteroids in the belt), and its orbit should approximate the belt. Check the options for orbits and extra brightness. Vary the "field of view" to get the inner and outer planets to appear (separately, unfortunately). Try 5 FOV for the inner ones and 60 for the outer ones.
