This icosahedron of Mercury was created from a map of the planet taken from image data by the Mariner 10 spacecraft. Only 35 % of the surface of Mercury was imaged. This Icosahedron uses the imaged portions of the planet to fill in the rest of the missing data. The Icosahedron can be assemble cutting along the edges of the map. Tape or glue can be used to assemble the globe. Double-sided tape works well. The challenge is in connecting the last edges together. Good luck and have fun.
