Ball shaped puzzles

Who said a puzzle must be square? These ones are ball shaped and really a masterpiece of fun work.

One very nice feature is that Amazon has a video you can watch before you purchase the item. Look how the puzzle pieces are bent and how the can be shaped into a ball form.

When you make the puzzleglobe about our earth, all the names of countries, seas and cities are there. It is educational indeed!

The full-color photographs and illustrations are spectacular. Each of the planets gets several pages of coverage, with comets, meteors, and asteroids also receiving attention. This book serves best as an introduction to the single topic books since the information presented here is quite brief.

 

What Is The Solar System?

The Solar System is made up of all the planets that orbit our Sun. In addition to planets, the Solar System also consists of moons, comets, asteroids, minor planets, and dust and gas.

Everything in the Solar System orbits or revolves around the Sun. The Sun contains around 98% of all the material in the Solar System. The larger an object is, the more gravity it has. Because the Sun is so large, its powerful gravity attracts all the other objects in the Solar System towards it. At the same time, these objects, which are moving very rapidly, try to fly away from the Sun, outward into the emptiness of outer space. The result of the planets trying to fly away, at the same time that the Sun is trying to pull them inward is that they become trapped half-way in between. Balanced between flying towards the Sun, and escaping into space, they spend eternity orbiting around their parent star.

It sounds like it could be challenging. We usually work at least a puzzle or two each winter...maybe it's time we stepped up the difficulty.
