Product Description

A cosmic background raditation globe, using the map produced by the WMAP (Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe) team.

50mm version
70mm version
90mm version
120mm version
160mm version
200mm version

This globe essentially represents a view of the primordial universe, showcasing 13.77 billion year old temperature fluctuations that would eventually seed and become the large scale structures of our present day universe.

For one to correctly experience the globe, he would have to stand at the center of it, not unlike a star chart globe. As it stands now, it can be loosely be seen as looking at our observable universe from the "outside", at a time when it was only 375,000 years old.
