Topographic detail uses real Nasa data, with LRO photographic data mapped over the geometry.
Elevation is slightly exaggerated since features to real scale would be imperceptible to human touch.

The globe makes immediately obvious the difference between the "smooth" Mare and the crater-heavy far side hemisphere.

When held in profile the Moon globe also features the slight egg-shape of the moon, which causes the crust thickness difference between the near & far side.

3d printing allows this object to be made in one piece rather than two hemispheres, leaving no joining lines and creating a unique "little planet" illusion. Instead the process creates a small hole at the south pole, which doubles as a means to stabilize the globe on a surface.

"The Moon", or "Luna" by its Latin name is Earth's singular natural satellite. It is the largest moon in the solar system relative to its parent planet.

A significant influence in stabilizing as well as having slowed down Earth's spin during the eons, Life could have evolved without it, but it would probably look very different. Making the Moon as much a "home planet" to us as Earth!
