Milky Way In A Sphere // LED Set
Focusing on a smaller part of space than the original Universe in a Sphere, the Milky Way in a Sphere is a laser-etched orb that offers an accurate rendering of our galaxy.
More than 200,000,000,000 stars form this tremendous swirl of suns, planets, and gases. With a diameter of 200,000 lightyears—meaning a journey at the speed of light for two-hundred thousand years from one end to the other— humans can only dream of traveling through it. To even visit our nearest neighbor star, Alpha Centauri, would take you more than 4 years at the speed of light. The ISS—with its 7.6km/s speed—would even take 160,000 years.
The Milky Way in a Big is the best way to experience the beauty and the vastness of the cosmos. Within this solid glass orb, 200,000 precisely lasered dots map our Galaxy, the Globular Clusters, and the Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxy with astonishing precision. The result is a mesmerizing orb that shrinks the Milky Way down small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.
Complete with LED base to help bring this sphere to life, you can gaze into this sphere for hours imagining just how small we are.
