Q:
Who created the globe?
A:

The first globe was created by a German mapmaker named Martin Behaim in 1492. He was inspired by the discoveries of Nicolaus Copernicus, a Polish astronomer who suggested that the Earth and its surrounding planets were round, not flat. He also proposed that the Earth was not the center of the Universe, as many people thought. Behaim called his globe an “Erdapfel,” or “Earth Apple.”
