Deskspace is known for their elegant, space-related items, like a replica of our solar system.  Their latest creation is an elegant slab of the moon’s surface, (created from concrete), but modeled after the exact, crater-covered moon itself. Using data from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, it’s a scientific item sure to be an amazing conversation starter.

A fascinating and unique gift for the space geek in your life.Via Colossal:
