Sky & Telescope announces its new Pluto globe ($24.99). This 6-inch, semi-gloss-finished globe is assembled from more than 125 images acquired by cameras aboard NASA's New Horizons spacecraft during its historic 2015 flyby, resulting in a base map showing details as small as 1 mile across. Sixty features are labeled with the informal names chose by the New Horizons team, as well as Latinized versions of topographical features. The globe comes with a freestanding base and a 4-by-6-inch information card. SKU #R5295.
