[Science doesn’t deal with facts; indeed] fact is an emotion-loaded word for which there is little place in scientific debate. – Hermann Bondi

Telos septentrion,

Brighter than the 6th magnitude,

Geo-helio lesion,

Parallel of latitude,

Sun hub Interlineation.

It is by a mathematical point only that we are wise, as the sailor or fugitive slave keeps the polestar in his eye; but that is sufficient guidance for all our life. We may not arrive at our port within a calculable period, but we would preserve the true course. Author: Henry David Thoreau
