"I can only show you something real, I can't make you appreciate it." Kugel

What in the world is a kugel? A kugel is a perfectly spherical ball that sits on a matching concave platform with only the thinnest layer of water between them. The water creates an effect that allows the ball to roll easily within the stand with even the slightest touch. The kugel at the Science Museum in Richmond – known as the Grand Kugel – is the largest of its kind anywhere in the world. The ball is almost nine feet in diameter and weighs in at 29 tons. Next time you are in the capital city, be sure to stop by and "move the world."
