Spaceship Earth, Epcot

The symbol of one of the four theme parks at Disney World, Spaceship Earth is a very unique structure. This 18 story geodesic sphere houses an attraction of the same name that describes the history of human communication. It is the most easily recognizable structure in the park, and visible from a significant distance away.

The structure is supported by three main legs and adorned by thousands of points made up of thousands more isosceles triangles. In addition, it is surrounded by sculptures, flowers, and trees that add to its beauty.

Being one of the main icons of Disney World, which is itself an iconic American destination, Spaceship Earth is itself an icon of America. I was awestruck the first time I laid eyes on it, it just looked so odd! Its abnormal form just drew me in out of curiosity, I had to know what was inside.
