Venus is the 2nd planet from the Sun. It is scorched with a surface temperature of about 482° C (900° F) and is veiled by thick swirling cloud cover. This icosahedron was created from a mosaic of radar data taken by the Magellan spacecraft and was color coded to represent elevation. It can be assemble cutting along the edges of the map. Tape or glue can be used to assemble the globe. Double-sided tape works well. The challenge is in connecting the last edges together. Good luck and have fun.
