A globe tends to endow any space with a culturally savvy and adventurous tone; take that to the next level with the Moon Globe by Sky & Telescope. There was a time when the entire world was not easily accessible via the Internet and adventurers had to set out on daring expeditions to map out the contours of the globe.

While the earth may have been already mapped out and explored, the moon presents us with another canvas for exploration. The 12" moon globe has 850 points of interest labelled on it, derived from over 15,000 images from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera. The moon globe would make a great addition to your planetary office once moon colonies are established and lunar exploration becomes a full time job.
