What Did Tolkien Know And When Did He Know It?


This is an image of the star Fomalhaut and its ring of dust particles taken by Hubble. (NASA, ESA, Kalas/Graham/UCB, Clampin/NASA/GSFC.) It is the first visible light image of Fomalhaut's ring of dust particles. It's strikingly beautiful. Fans of Lord of the Rings will recognize its similarity to the Eye of Sauron. Face on Mars types are bound to have a field day with this coincidence. Read more about the discovery at http://www.newscientistspace.com/article.ns?id=dn7564. Posted by Hello
