The team behind a new Kickstarter campaign isn’t the first bunch astronomy enthusiasts to create a detailed globe based on our nearest lunar neighbour. But using topographical data gathered by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, this Moon globe is the first to accurately recreate all of its craters, mountains and valleys in 3D.
If you have more air miles saved up than money in the bank, here’s a clever way to keep track of every single country you’ve visited on your global travels. Basic origami skills are all that’s needed to assemble this 3D cardboard globe featuring a gold foil outer layer that can be scratched off revealing the nations you’ve visited.
= Jupiter is not only the largest planet in our solar system, it’s also arguably the most stunning. Those massive storms — including that enormous red eye — produce quite an atmospheric show. And as a cheaper alternative to a giant telescope, this tiny desktop-sized version of Jupiter lets you stare in awe at the gas giant when you probably should be working.

Yuri Suzuki has been travelling the world, using a dictaphone to collect local sounds of different countries since 2009. With these audio field notes, he’s turned a globe into a record that plays these sounds when it spins for a 30-minute audio tour of the world called “The Sound of the Earth”.
Everyone loves a great homemade, photo-snapping, high-atmosphere balloon. But what about one carrying a globe with a little Buzz Lightyear figure standing on top? That has to be even cooler, right? Right. Thanks, Russian guys.
