Product Description

The Universe in a Sphere is an unbelievable glass orb that fits in the palm of your hand, and accurately represents the structure of our universe. It's a true scale model of 380,000 galaxies and 815,000,000 light years worth of travel, captured in glass for you to see. Every dot is a tiny crack inside the glass, that reflects light. It's made with a strong laser, which is focused on each single point and blasts a short heat impulse, where a tiny crack appears. Every dot is an entire galaxy with billions of stars.

Inside, you will see our own galaxy, The Milky Way, and it's nearest neighbor - 2.5 million years of light speed travel away - the Andromeda galaxy. There are also 100,000 more galaxies, which make up Laniakea, our home Supercluster, and more cracks representing even larger structures.
