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