The MOVA globe ( 12cm ) is the first member of a new family of objects that come quietly to life when touched by light, without wires or batteries. The globe floats at a point of perfect balance between buoyant forces and gravitational forces, and slowly turns as it feels the force of the Earth's magnetic field and the energy carried in light. Its perpetual, quiet motion brings a tranquil point of focus to a room. Add more light and watch it spin faster, dim the setting and observe it slowing. It really is an amazing sight to see!
The MOVA globe works similarly to a compass in that the Earth's magnetic field makes this work!
$69.95Listing more than 500 sky targets, both near and far, in 187 challenges, this observing guide will test novice astronomers and advanced veterans alike.

$19.95One it starts, it won't stop! Watch in amazement at the science and novelty behind this bird.
$29.95Astronomers have long known that the Universe is expanding, but everything they could see indicated that gravity should be slowing this spread. Instead, it appears that the Universe is accelerating its expansion and that something stronger than gravity --dark energy -- is at work. In Einstein's Telescope Evalyn Gates, a University of Chicago astrophysicist, transports us to the edge of contemporary science to explore the revolutionary tool that unlocks the secrets of these little-understood cosmic constituents. Based on Einstein's theory of general relativity, gravitational lensing, or "Einstein's Telescope," is enabling new discoveries that are taking us toward the next revolution in scientific thinking -- one that may change forever our notions of where the Universe came from and where it is going.
$29.95The first full-scale biography of the most renowned name in science to be written since those who closely guarded his privacy have died.

$19.95Build your own kaleidoscope and create millions of dazzling patterns by adding different objects into the viewing chamber, the fun is unlimited.
$19.95Not only is this a beautiful glass ornament, it also displays a fundamental scientific law. In 1787 Jacques Charles discovered that a gas volume is proportional to its absolute temperature, or in other words, as the temperature increases, the volume will increase. This became known as Charles’ Law, and it explains to us how this amazing Hand Boiler works. The gas molecules in the container speed up as the temperature increases, and this in turn increases the pressure in one chamber and shoots the liquid into the next, thus creating a stunning liquid display!
This product makes a beautiful simple display of a complex scientific principle or an interesting gift for the science minded, artistic or hard to buy for person.
Caution: Fragile glass, flammable, not recommended for children under the age of three.
