Recreating old Universal logo

My name is Michael:

I am trying to recreate the old Universal logo, the one that keeps spinning around the world, in blender. I am new to blender, I have never used it before, so if anyone can help I would appreciate very much. Also, are there any sites I can visit that have step by step instructions for the different uses of Blender?
