Seeing the world on a globe

People have been slow to accept the concept of a spherical world, yet the ancient Greeks knew the Earth was round. The Greek historian, Straho, wrote of a world globe ten feet in diameter made by Crates of Mallus and exhibited in 150 B.C. Thus, for centuries, men haw known the shape of Earth, but most visualized it only as the small, flat area that embraced their everyday lives.

Today, however, we live in a global community, and the globe has become the map of our modem world. Jet travel and modern communication have overcome natural barriers, reduced distances between all nations. And man's exploration in outer space wilh manned and unmanned satellites has brought home graphically the roundness of our Earth and its place in the universe.

One of the basic uses or your globe is to find places cities, nations, land and water areas -jusl as easily as you can find the busiest street corner in your home town. Finding a place is not enough, however, unless you see it in its true geographical relationship to the rest of the world or, in other words, see those countries which are its neighbors and the true distances and directions between them.

The question, "Where is it?", is answered best by using a globe, for only on a globe are distances, directions, sizes and shapes of countries, and their relationship to each other - all correct! Seeing the true geographical relationships of all nations on this round replica of our world increases our understanding of their economic, social and political status, as well as their interdependence. It has been said that wider use of the globe among all peoples of Earth could be a powerful instrument for peace.

Your globe will dispel any misconceptions about distances and directions obtained from studying flat maps. Looking straight down at the north pole, you see that ours is largely a northern world. Many great nations form a circle around the pole—Japan, China, the Soviet Union, the Scandinavian countries, the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States. Today, the Arctic has become a busy intersection for planes following the shortest routes between major cities of the world.

Not only is your globe a true guide to our modern world; its usefulness extends to many other areas of learning. It illuminates the pages of history, makes events in today's world more significant, enriches our understanding of the sciences including the exciting, new sciences of inner and outer space. Learning the uses of your globe will assist you toward its fullest enjoyment.
