An astrolabe is the universe itself.

When you hold an astrolabe, you hold a model of our universe. Its name means 'star-taker', and it was used to answer the big human questions: where are we in time and space?

This astrolabe is a beautiful and faithful reproduction of a design from the 1500s by the renowned maker Georg Hartmann. It is fully functional, and comes with an extensive instruction booklet. You can find a selection of his objects in the Object Collection Database of the History of Science Museum, Oxford.
