Venus Globe Model


  • Surface is compiled from multiple data sets
  • Manual contains photographs of topography
Named after the Roman Goddess of love; with regions labeled Aphrodite Terra and Diana Chasma, one would expect a paradise planet. But in reality, the surface of Venus is more like a landscape out of Dante's Inferno; a haunting, hostile place.

This 12" diameter globe shows the surface of Venus as revealed by more than a decade of radar imaging that culminated in the 1990-1994 Magellan mission.

The Magelan spacecraft mapped more than 98% of Venus at a resolution of about 100 meters. A mosaic of the Magellan images forms the base map. Gaps in coverage were filled with images from the Soviet Venera 15 and 16 spacecraft and by radar images from the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico.

The accompanying 14-page manual includes many photographs of Venus' unique topography, surveys the history of Venusian exploration and covers the debates still raging over the planet's 1,000 craters.
Includes stand and guide. Size: 30.5cm dia.
