• Liebe Forenmitglieder,

    das Redaktionsteam sucht Verstärkung. Einige von uns wollen nach vielen Jahren emsiger Sorge für ein gepflegtes Lupen-Leben in die Lupen-Rente gehen, anderen wird schlichtweg die Zeit für dieses Ehrenamt knapp. Deshalb suchen wir Nachwuchs.

    Interesse? Mehr Infos finden sich hier.

Turtles all the way down

Wiki says:
A well-known scientist (some say it was Bertrand Russell) once gave a public lecture on astronomy. He described how the earth orbits around the sun and how the sun, in turn, orbits around the center of a vast collection of stars called our galaxy. At the end of the lecture, a little old lady at the back of the room got up and said: "What you have told us is rubbish. The world is really a flat plate supported on the back of a giant tortoise." The scientist gave a superior smile before replying, "What is the tortoise standing on?" "You're very clever, young man, very clever," said the old lady. "But it's turtles all the way down!"
—Hawking, 1988
