Exclusively from Astronomy Magazine!

For centuries, the planet Mars has captured our imaginations with its nearness and intriguing geological features. Now you can display our solar system neighbor in your office or classroom with this 12“ injection-molded globe, featuring vibrantly colored, richly detailed images with 206 planetary features and landing sites identified and labeled. 

Developed by the staff of Astronomy magazine, this globe was produced using maps from the two Viking missions and updated data from the Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter (MOLA) aboard the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS). As its name implies, MOLA collected altimetry data that allowed scientists to determine the height of martian features.

Each globe is made of long-lasting durable plastic with just a single seam between hemispheres and comes with a clear acrylic display base.
