NASA approved, this globe is not attached to its stand, allowing for it to be picked up and examined closely. With topographic shading showing the geographical features of the moon, craters, seas and mountain ranges, you can find where Apollo II landed, locate the Sea of Nectar, the Cordillera mountains and the Lake of Dreams. The globe comes with a supplementary booklet entitled The Story of the Moon which details facts about the lunar surface features, spacecraft probes, its phases and changing appearance, as well as the effects of the moon on earth’s tides and eclipses. It is a terrific gift for space enthusiasts.
Starting with the records of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, formed in 1915 to study problems of flight and to conduct research in aeronautics, the National Archives holds in trust the records of NASA and other records related to aeronautics, including the Wright brothers' patent for their flying machine.
