….How about Mars, complete with Olympus Mons, the tallest volcano in the solar system? The best part of this decoration is that it moves without you touching it. This version of Mars uses low-light solar cells and the Earth’s magnetic field to allow the red planet’s dust storms to glide by while you watch. For a force of nature so turbulent, it’s all very soothing.
