MOON is a topographically accurate lunar globe, using NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter topographic information total with electronic and automatic engineering alongside clever craftsmanship in mold making. It displays a stream lunar phases during any given time. It is an accurate 1/20 million reproduction of a Moon featuring all a craters, betterment and ridges in accurate 3D. It has a ring of LED lights that revolves around a globe, constantly educational a scold face of a moon and recreating a lunar phases as seen from Earth.

The multiple of a 3D turf with a light source is what creates it unique. By lifted a light onto a Moon, all a craters, ridges and elevations are brought into service by their shadows. This recreates a lunar facilities as we see them from Earth.


  • Overall dimensions: 370mm X 330mm X180mm (14.5in X 13in X 7in)
  • Globe: ø 173mm (6.8 inches) – 1/20 million scale
  • Weight: 1.8kg (3.15lbs)
  • Arm length: 260mm
  • Table aspect indispensable for 360º rotation: 550mm X 550mm (21.6in X 21.6in)
  • Material: Polyurethane resin, CNC machined and anodized aluminium, powder coated steel, electronic board
  • Power: 100-240V 50/60 Hz, 5V adaptor supplied

2-89d64c58e905c7db6623aff58cef2a20_originalThanks to NASA, there is accurate information of space images and with complicated record such as 3D copy allows to emanate perplexing objects from tender data. Traditional lunar globes are still regulating prosaic images (photographs or illustrations) mounted onto a globe and do not take full advantage of a data.

The plan has so distant lifted some-more than £21 thousands on Kickstarter, from some-more than 100 backers, with 29 days to go before a debate ends. Those subsidy this debate are betrothed shipping date of Nov 2016. The cost is £300.
