Globe

A globe is a three-dimensional scale model of Earth (terrestrial globe or geographical globe) or other spheroid celestial body such as a planet, star, or moon. Some terrestrial globes include relief to show mountains and other features on the Earth's surface. The word "globe" comes from the Latin word globus, meaning round mass or sphere. It may also refer to a spherical representation of the celestial sphere, showing the apparent positions of the stars and constellations in the sky (celestial globe).

Famous quotes containing the word globe:

    There are only two forces that can carry light to all the corners of the globe ... the sun in the heavens and the Associated Press down here.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    I suppose an entire cabinet of shells would be an expression of the whole human mind; a Flora of the whole globe would be so likewise, or a history of beasts; or a painting of all the aspects of the clouds. Everything is significant.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    There are no fixtures in nature. The universe is fluid and volatile. Permanence is but a word of degrees. Our globe seen by God is a transparent law, not a mass of facts. The law dissolves the fact and holds it fluid.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
