Planets have been tossed into volcanoes in Hawaii and New Zealand. Josh has put
them in the flower pots that line the streets of Greenfield, Massachusetts, and
recently placed one inside the highest turret of the Chambord Castle in the Loire
Valley, France. Planets are in the rain forests of Bali, the fjords of Norway and ruins
in Greece. They are hidden in the city streets of New York, London and Tokyo.
One bakes in an Arizona desert, another freezes on a glacier field in Antarctica, still
others rest in the deepest oceans (special thanks to the Woods Hole
Oceanographic Institute and ALVIN). Simpson's Planets dot the seven continents
and three of the seven seas. They remain, and will for centuries, until someone
stumbles across one and wonders: What is this and where did it come from?
EnviroNote: Glass is made of silica, one of the Earth's primary constituents. It is
chemically stable and will remain unchanged for thousands of years. It cannot harm
the environment and is Y2K compatible.
For the year two thousand, Josh
Simpson is launching The
Infinity Project. Twice each week
he will give two Planets (one to
keep and one to hide) inscribed with the infinity symbol to explorers and
anyone else who writes to tell why, when and where they want to place a Planet.
Josh will choose two people each week for all of Y2K and we'll post the exciting
words and pictures of their adventures here on the world wide web.

hidden in a different spot each month--click on it an you will be
