The purpose of the text is to look at one of the missions inscribed in the frame of modernity, that is, the design of the Earth as a whole, and thus perceiving it in terms of the globe and the planet. The essay describes three projects of the Earth treated as a globe, an Earth Spaceship, and an integrated Earth System Science creating a cyborg’s vision of the planet. Although they differ from each other in their historical, political and scientific background, these examples form a connected network of the Earth project in which the colonialism and imperialism of the first explorers are continued in the globalist-capitalist concepts of defining the planet as a sphere open to possible modifications implemented since the second half of the 20th century and transformations significantly affecting the functioning of the entire ecosystem.
