Default How to render both sides of a surface?

I'm creating a globe with a transparent sea, so that you can see the other side.

Currently when I render it, the texture on the inside of the sphere is not displayed. It's just white.

How can i make it so that Maya renders both the inside and outside of the sphere?

Thanks.

Flags are quite easy...

I'm really struggling to recreate the image on that site you linked me to.

When i middle mouse drag the samplerInfo to the blendColours node I can't get it to connect in any way. Same happens if I try to connect the blendColours node to the surfaceShader.

Help?
