Product Description

Sky & Telescope's updated 12" scale model of Venus relied on a mosaic of images from the Magellan mission to Venus (1990-1994). Magellan mapped more than 98% of Venus at a resolution of about 100 meters (330 feet); the effective resolution of this globe is 5 kilometers. Other data used for the globe came from the Pioneer Venus mission, the Soviet Venera 15 and 16 spacecraft, and radar images from Arecibo Observatory. Altogether this globe, which comes with a 16-page booklet, offers a beneath-the-clouds glimpse of our sister planet in unprecedented detail.
