50th anniversary of the Moon landing: lunar globes of our companion in space

June 11 2019, Betty Lux

Since time immemorial the human race and human imagination have been fascinated by the Moon. Through a telescope or astronomical binoculars it seems so close and yet still it sometimes seems so far away. However scientific knowledge about the Earth’s satellite has multiplied in recent years.

The publishing house Columbus Verlag, one of the very first manufacturers of lunar globes, has created a completely new and revised lunar globe – exclusively for us! Because the relief map is intricately applied by hand, the result is a significantly higher resolution and brilliant image. This lunar globe represents high quality workmanship, made in Germany.

AstroReality: Moon- and planetary models with interactive 3D App

June 22 2018, Elias Erdnüß

The young company, AstroReality, from San Francisco, is bringing the solar system to your living room. The innovative developments in the fields of 3D printing and augmented reality have been brought together to form unique products. Models of heavenly bodies in our solar system  made with great attention to detail are now available. Each reproduction shows the unmistakable character and features of each one. The most impressive is the model of the Moon, LUNAR Pro. Based on data from the NASA, Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, a highly detailed relief surface of the Moon was created. Craters, mountains and seas can be touched, and the realistically coloured surface gives you the feeling that you are holding the Moon in your hands.

The models are not just great to look at, and make excellent decorative objects, they also invite users on an interactive journey of discovery. The AstroReality app (currently only available in English) recognises the models via your smartphone’s camera and embeds them into a simulated 3D space environment. Details are then added to these heavenly bodies (e.g. the rings of Saturn or Earth’s atmosphere), from which you will learn valuable knowledge about the planets. With the highly detailed model of the Moon, the LUNAR Pro, there is additional information about specific features of the surface, and it’s even possible to simulate interactive Moon missions.

The models of all the planets and of Pluto are available in a set with a diameter of 3 cm. To go with them, there is also a LUNAR mini model of the same size. The 12-cm LUNAR Pro globe (with a surface 16 times bigger than the mini model) represents the Moon with much greater detail.

In addition to the heavenly bodies, AstroReality also offers a LUNAR AR notebook. With a relief surface of the Moon and a 3D model of our satellite that can be retrieved via the app, it’s the right notebook for astronomy enthusiasts and night owls.

The AstroReality products also make great presents for members of the family and friends who are fascinated by space.

The Classic Globe is a Thing of the Past. Check out the New Planet Globes!

May 18 2018, Betty Lux

Renowned and reliable: the classic earth globes either with or without illumination; with political or physical map images. But thanks to the newest data from more than 50 years of space science, we now have their successors: modern planet globes!

Reimagine the classics: a celestial globe of Räthgloben

Think about fetching the unique beauty of the night sky into your home. With this globe of Räthgloben 1917, you don’t need to go outside or wait for starry nights. Like its classical predecessors, this globe also has a double-image feature, meaning it shows single star spots while not illuminated, which vary in their size depending on their brightness. Turning on the integrated lamp, the stars connect to symbols and zodiac signs. Who could have thought that? The globe turns into your own little night sky!

Like a ghost: Stellanova floating globe Saturn

Extraordinary and fascinating at the same time: that is how the Stellanova floating globes can be described. In the picture is shown the Saturn globe with 15cm diameter. But, how does it work exactly? With a new technology CCL (Computer Controlled Levitation) a magnetic field sensor measures the height of the floating sphere. With additional electronics in the base and magnets in the upper part, the globe is held in between – and appears to float magically! This high-tech device is of course the center of attention as soon as assembled. Bring home the weightlessness of the universe!

Technology meets design: the Red Planet now as illuminated globe!

Instead of letting the classical globe on your night stand get dusty, try out the “Red Planet” of National Geographic. This globe shows, in surprisingly sharp cartography, the Martian surface as a 30cm diameter globe. Elegantly it is carried by a metallic stand on a circular base. It’s also the perfect gift for every astronomy enthusiast – bearing in mind the opposition of Mars later this year! Eye-catcher guaranteed with this trendy and simultaneously innovative piece of design. Which room will you grace with it?
