@WallaceJNichols, sea turtle specialist and peripatetic ocean advocate, developed the blue marble as a physical symbol by which to motivate empathy for and understanding of the ocean as an essential element in our lives. A blue marble, a blue glass sphere,  when held between thumb and forefinger against the light, glows with an iconic power. It is what earth looks like from space in scale, color and beauty, a planet that might well have been called “Oceanus.”  You can carry blue marbles, too. Visit wallacejnichols.org/130/blue-marbles and click on “Play the Blue Marble Game” where you can order your supply of blue marbles...by the hundreds!
