This Week In…. Instagram!

Long before there were planetariums or advanced technologies available for studying the sky, people devised ways of depicting the sun, moon, planets, and stars in relation to the Earth. There was a desire to learn about astronomical history and events; people wanted to figure out how Earth fit into the grand scheme of the universe. Globes helped to put objects into perspective, and served as scientific instruments, ornamental showpieces, and physical illustrations of the astronomy beliefs of the day…. this week we worked a bit on Celestial globes…

We have resumed work on a 80cm Galileo and almost done laying the gores….

Isis spent most of the week working on the design for our Rickshaw which will be part of the Travels to My Elephant event later this year…

And Kirsty continued on with practicing how to make Mini Globes.. she is getting close!
