Well…not so much. It actually took Peter Bellerby a year-and-a-half to figure out how to do it correctly. And there’s a lot of math involved.

And check out the Bellerby globes here: http://www.bellerbyandco.com/index.php/
BADGING: Read the article, watch the video at the bottom of it, and browse the Bellerby website. Explain in a paragraph why and how making a globe properly (or correctly) involves a lot of mathematics, and why this makes it such a difficult task. In a second paragraph, explain if you think this is a worthwhile investment of time and resources — are globes still relevant in the internet age? Could the time/money needed to make a globe be put to better use? Is it worth the effort and expense to make these globes? Explain why or why not.
