The Sectional Globes are self-assembled globes. The core framework, made of ultra-thin cardboard, is printed with the internal construction of the earth, while the surface sheets depict the outlines of the oceans, continents, and countries. After assembly, the globes are designed to lean at the precise angle of the earth's axis, 23.4 degrees.
Flourescent ink stores energy from daylight or artificial sources so you can experience how urban areas appear from space at night. Learn about the earth's structure when you assemble the core parts and the surface parts.
