THE FUTURE OF THE GREAT GLOBE
Imagine the over 400 foot globe rising over your head, your home just above you…….
“This sum does not frighten us, because it represents useful work, which humanity cannot do without, if it is to acquire perfect knowledge of its environment, and we already know, alas, how much our human wealth has been wasted on futilities and crimes. So we launch an appeal to men of good will to help create this proposed project.”
– – Elis’ee Reclus, French geographer
Proposed a Great Globe, 420ft in diameter, to be built for the 1900 World’s Fair in Paris.
