The cover of the magazine includes the traditional ″National Geographic″ title plus a photo of the globe being shattered by a pulse laser..

The breaking Earth was chosen to symbolize the theme of the December issue of the magazine, which focuses on the fragile nature of the planet with articles the imperiled rain forest, nature conservation, threats to the arctic and population growth, among othersThe photo of the breaking Earth was made by shattering a Steuben crystal globe, the magazine reported, using a green laser light to produce the image.
