The Earthball is a fantastic tool for discussing our planet with children, combining playtime with education!

Extreme Make-over

The ball of stars at the centre of this photograph is unbelievably old. These stars were burning before the first humans walked on Earth, before there even was an Earth. This group of stars, called a globular cluster, is actually 10 billion years old — that's almost as old as the universe itself!
