Fun Facts about Globes
A Globe is the only truly accurate world map. The Earth is a sphere so no flat image can ever truly be an accurate representation of it. The Mercator projection is a common type of world map but it has some big problems, countries near the north and south pole look bigger then they really are. Other flat projections run into similar issues. The only real way to solve them is with a globe.
