In keeping with its mission of educating good stewards of place, Kennesaw State University is now home to "Spaceship Earth," a 175-ton sculpture that champions environmental protection. The 15-foot-diameter blue Brazilian quartzite sphere is being erected outside the university's new Social Science Building, a "green building" that the university will submit for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design certification after construction is complete.

Spaceship Earth was created by renowned Finno-American sculptor Eino as a tribute to environmentalist David Brower.
