When NASA upgraded their satellite digital imagery of the Earth (The Blue Marble Project), the EarthBall was created for the Winter Olympics to help premiere the most modern images from space. The result was the most realistic replicas ever made, an astronaut's view of Earth. This large inflatable globe can rotate on a pedestal or suspended to be part of a display. The EarthBall is great for parades, Earth Day events, concerts, exhibitions, tradeshows, and special events.
You can clearly see: Landforms, Terrain, Climate features, Cloud patterns, Relief contour of the ocean’s floor, The magnificent reflection of coral reefs.
Every EarthBall comes with the 20 page Global Handbook, chock full of games, activities & resources for Earth adventurers of all ages. Each EarthBall also displays 'NightGlow Cities', allowing you to see the world's cities glowing brightly at night.
