The curiously-shattered image of the globe (left) can be folded into an origami balloon (some assembly required -- see below) that reassembles the map. The image is a composite from ETOPO2 topography and bathymetry overlaid with nighttime lights from DMSP. Print this page as big as you can, cut out the entire map square, and strike a blow for world pieces.1 2 3 4
