It's interesting to consider that there's virtually nothing keeping the Earth floating in space. Likewise, this Levitron Globe World Stage provides the same sort of awe in a miniature version! Using the same science of the original Levitron, powerful magnets oppose each other with enough force to keep a 3" globe afloat. Like our Earth, this small world also rotates on its axis! Eight LED lights in the magnetic base highlight the space between the two objects in an enchanting and captivating way. Whether as a cool science toy or just a conversation piece, the Levitron Globe World Stage never disappoints!
