We might not all have the means to travel to the moon (yet!), but we’re willing to bet that many given the opportunity would quickly jump at the chance. Museum of the Moon is a touring sculpture from UK artist Luke Jerram that takes you one step closer to experiencing the true awe and grandeur of the lunar surface. It’s a 23-foot wide, helium-filled and internally lit globe that displays a 21-meter wide, high-resolution image that was created by the Astrogeology Science Centre in the USA using imagery taken by a NASA satellite in 2010. That boils down to a 120dpi image with an approximate scale of 1:500,000 where each centimeter represents 5km of the lunar surface. Museum of the Moon features several different sculptures touring simultaneously with different audio compositions, so you can catch it all of Europe, Australia, China and Canada at any given time. Check out the site below for a full list of tour dates.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
