    I recall that someone asked Theodore Sturgeon his opinion of Science Fiction movies and he replied "That would be a wonderful idea."

    I do agree that Astronomy is a fascinating subject. One of the many I enjoy reading about.

    Just look at some of the science fiction writers and some of the things they have "invented". HG Wells, Arthur C Clarke, Jules Verne to name a few. Many of their predictions have come true.

    I even wanted to be an astronomer, but the math alone was way over my abilities. We are getting ready to move to a place where we will be able to see the stars - a place without city glare, shopping mall sodium lights, street and highway lights - and so on. Around here I'm lucky if I an see anything dimmer than a second magnitude star. In my teens I spent hours exploring the summer southern sky with a small home made telescope. Things might come full circle yet. (Big smile). ATB!

    It sound idyllic. I stayed in a small village in the South of France last year and it was wonderful to escape the light pollution we have become so used to

    Dear Br. Colin,

    It would be a real feat just to be physically involved in/with Planck Time, much less than at the moment of the Big Bang............

    Cosmology you say? Dr. P.J. Peebles has written most authoritatively and exhaustively on the subject of Physical Cosmology.
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Comrade CD, Glad you enjoyed my little BB thing I must stress although a Professor I am purely a lay man, Mr Peebles you say that will indeed be of great interest, this is a catchy little ditty that is in keeping with the subject:

    Br. Colin,

    I trust that your Differential Geometry is up to snuff then.......

    Ой, по-русский он гаварит...Хорошо!
