Product Description
A little DIY Saturn!

Saturn (Bifurcated) 50mm Version
Saturn (Bifurcated) 70mm Version
Saturn (Bifurcated) 90mm Version

Saturn's rapid rotation causes the equator to bulge out by a significant amount. With an equatorial diameter of 120,536 km and a polar diameter of 108,728 km the two diameters vary by almost 10%, which is more than enough to give Saturn a noticeably oval shape. 

This globe requires some DIY! It is composed of two 3d printed hemispheres, and a A4 pdf file of the rings.
The idea is that one can print the rings, and then cut & trap a disk of the printout between the two hemispheres which can then be glued together.

The end result should be a ringed globe, without awkward supports and paper-thing rings, as is the case in reality.
