The inspiration of mythic and sci-fi tales, the Stellanova 9-in. Diam. Levitating Jupiter is a fitting tribute to the largest planet in our solar system. This celestial orb seems to be levitating, as it hangs in mid-air by an electronically controlled magnetic field. A built-in computer chip continuously adjusts to atmospheric changes to guarantee the globe remains suspended. Simply begin the rotation with a gentle spin. The electronic system will register the rotation and keep the planet rotating until you stop it. Perched above this planet is a replica of the space probe that explored this massive planet. This globe comes with an informational booklet with details, dates, and specs of the probe and its visit to Jupiter.
