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?
No matter whether a single planet or even in a set as solar system: planet globes show your investigative spirit as well as an innovative flair at home. Check out our special assortment!
