image for Sudden Impact ruins children's dream

For the past three years, more than 70 million tiny tots from every Kindergarden, Playgroup and nursery across the world have been busily involved in one of the planet's largest art projects, jointly sponsored by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and the Google corporation .

Children from every corner of the world have been downloading and printing pages from their own little corner of Google Earth, cutting them out (using safety scissors) and gluing them together in an attempt to make a photographic-quality one-third scale replica of the Planet Earth.

Although not without the odd controversy - the Fijians were close to being disqualified after their attempt to make the Fijian Archipelago roughly the size of continental North America - the project had drawn praise for it's attempt to bring the peoples of the world together.

However, tragedy has struck the project. During the early hours of Tuesday morning, at the assembly site in the Nevada Desert, the near-complete globe was struck by a papier-mache asteroid, instantly obliterating it.
