Mercury Globe MERCGLB $99.95

For centuries, our solar system's innermost planet was shrouded in mystery. Now, for the first time ever, you can use a globe to explore Mercury's entire surface! This new Sky & Telescope 12-inch globe was made possible by NASA's Messenger spacecraft, which recently finished imaging the entire planet. The base map comes from about 18,000 Messenger images, and special image processing has preserved the natural light and dark shading of the surface. The names of more than 350 craters and other features are labeled, including craters named after famous artists, musicians, painters, and authors.

What Sky & Telescope's Peter Tyson, has to say:
"Mercury is hard to get close to: it's so close to the Sun that astronomers lose it in the glare of our star. Here's your chance to hold Mercury in your very hands."
