Bicentennial Mall Floating Globe

Bicentennial Mall Floating Globe

Did you know that a several ton ball of marble will float on just an inch or two of water? Well, it can, and there's one at Bicentennial Mall at downtown Nashville to prove it. (I've also seen one at Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum in Gatlinburg.) It takes a little bit of effort but you can spin the sphere. The one here also serves as a globe - Tennessee is somewhere on the other side.

In the background, you can see the State Capitol, as well as other downtown buildings.
