BANG went the universe! After a couple of chance collisions the stars, the planets and the galaxies were born. If we look to the skies, we can witness the distant lights of from other galaxies traveling into our solar system. From our earthy point in the Milky Way, we can see the planets in night, and with this Planetary Glass Set, you can bring the entire solar system onto your dining room table.
The set comes with 10 glasses and each one represents a different member of our planetary structure. The cups are elliptical shaped mimicking the planets’ orbital patterns. The sun is a bit bigger and Pluto – yup, Pluto is present and accounted for – is a bit smaller. All in all, it’s a 10 ounce capacity for Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. The sun holds 16 ounces and Pluto holds a substantial 4 ounces
Every cup boasts a colorful and artistic design capturing the atmospheres of our system’s various worlds. The eye of Jupiter’s storm is just as vivid as Earth’s continents. Each cup is 3 inches in diameter at its widest point and stands 3.5 inches tall. Our star’s look-a-like is 4 inches at the widest and 4 inches tall. Our outer most planet’s replica weighs in at just 2.5 inches tall and 2.5 inches wide.
These 100% glass representations are a ThinkGeek exclusive. It’s a great gift for an astronomer or anyone who just likes to gaze into the heavens. Hold galactic giants in your hands with this Planetary Glass Set.
