Description
An inveterate tinkerer and inventor as well as a brilliant astronomer and mathematician, Galileo Galilei refined and built compasses, thermometers, and of course telescopes, so he well understood the planetary spheres of the Solar System and the circular orbits of the planets around the sun. Inspired by Galileo, this globe puzzle is an intricate construction of a dozen wooden pieces, and requires manual as well as mental dexterity to solve. Removing the key piece and taking apart the globe is easy; fitting all the pieces back together is the tricky part, and once you've got it down, you can practice to see how quickly you can rebuild the globe. Intended for puzzlers 7 to adult, the globe measures 3 inches along each axis, and is rated four out of five points for difficulty.
