Mars Globe 12 inch 4676X $99.95
Mars Globe 12 inch  4676X

Even the Hubble Space Telescope can't show you all the details found on this new edition of our classic Mars globe. Created with more than 6,000 images taken by the Viking orbiters, our 12-inch globe approximates the planet's true color.

Produced in cooperation with NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey, the globe includes official names for 140 features.

Sky & Telescope has sold beautiful, detailed, and accurate Mars globes for many years. These globes have come with an 16-page booklet about the surface of Mars, authored by Michael Carr of the U.S. Geological Survey. For years, Dr. Carr has been a leading expert on Martian geology and history. Now, this booklet has been updated by Dr. Carr himself. It describes the latest discoveries of past water on Mars from NASA's Mars Exploration Rovers Spirit and Opportunity --- findings that boost prospects that the Red Planet was once an abode for life. The updated booklet also discusses the latest findings from NASA's Mars Odyssey and Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, and the European Space Agency's Mars Express orbiter. These spacecraft are revealing new details of Mars's surface composition and structure, which are helping scientists unravel the mystery of how and when Mars evolved from a warm-and-wet world that may have supported life to the planet-wide desert that we see today.
