Globe in glorious colour

Sun, 21 Nov 2010

I re-layed the parts of the globe on a more accurate net, added a bit of colour and reprinted.

The net comes in two parts. It's easy enough to assemble the individual parts. The tricky bit is joining the two halves together. By having alternating tabs on each side the model lines its self up quite well so shouldn't be too much of a nightmare to put together.


Next, the stand. Turns out that the angle of tilt of the earth is known as the obliquity of the ecliptic. Nice! The angle is currently 23.4 degrees.
