(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); circle x sphere = ???

Is the product space [tex]S^1 \times S^2[/tex] related (e.g. homeomorphic or homotopy equivalent) to a more familiar topological space? I am currently looking at maps from [tex]S^1 \times S^2[/tex] into other spaces, and I am having a really hard time visualizing what I am doing. Any thoughts appreciated.
