  • Description

    Robert Moses, president of the 1964-65 New York World Fair, unveiled the symbol of the Fair at a ceremony in New York, USA, Feb 14. The symbol - called the Unisphere - is a huge sphere emblazoned with a map of the world and girdled by orbiting satellites.

    "Unisphere illustrates, symbolizes and embodies Man's achievements on a shrinking globe in an expanding universe," Moses said. "It emphasizes the necessity of achieving peace through mutual understanding of all people."
    The illustration gives some idea of what the completed sphere will be like. It will be 13 stories high, 120 feet wide, and will be embedded in a pool with fountains. It will be a permanent fixture. Major cities of the world will be illuminated on it.
