Rose has a spherical plum of radius $2$ and a spherical watermelon of radius $8$.  She builds a glass sphere around the two fruits to contain them, making the sphere as small as possible.  When she has done this, she places a golf ball inside the glass sphere that is tangent to the plum and watermelon.  What is the largest possible radius of the golf ball?

I'm not really the best at explaining these problems, so I'll just leave it with this!

 

Thanks! :)
