    Fascinating stuff, even though if it had succeeded, it would have served the forces of evil to prolong (or even turn around, which I doubt) the war ... https://airandspace.si.edu/collection-objects/horten-ho-229-v3/nasm_A19600324000 Anyway, folks, we're only ten days away from our 300th...

    Challenge! Day to Day 228

    I'm settling on something simple today (very tired, trying day): 228 in binary reads 11 10 01 00 - which, read in groups of two, is a binary countdown ... Well, neat. :biggrin: M.

    In 1898, on this date, Émile Zola published "J'accuse" - exposing and condemning the Dreyfus affair. https://www.britannica.com/topic/Jaccuse Sorry to revisit this subject so soon after day 219 - but I think it's an extraordinary event insofar as art stood up against establishment and had a...

    11 years ago, Haiti was devastated - and it's still going on ... A really sombre reminder. Still, maybe it's necessary. It certainly puts things into perspective. M.

    Since it's actually directly tied to this day of the month: Surprisingly thought-provoking (provocative language notwithstanding). It also saved you from some history lesson or other ;) M.

    Challenge! Day to Day 223

    A little math trivia for starters: 223 is prime, but lives in a so-called "sea" of composite numbers: The next smaller prime is 211 (an impressive twelve units smaller), the next bigger prime is 227. 223 is special in that it is the smallest prime that lives within such a vast sea of non-primes...

    Take it as it was conceived (with lots of tongue in at least four cheeks): And here's a more palatable version of the general idea: Most people are more familiar with version "4" ... but "1" appeared alongside "9" on the iconic White Album (I own the original vinyl ...). M.

    Anyone still remembering this? It always strikes me the so-called Deadly Sins are so very human in nature ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_deadly_sins N.B. I report on this strictly from a historical standpoint, not a moral or theological one. M.

    Challenge! Day to Day 221

    410 years ago, Galilei first observed Jupiter's four biggest moons (which are since called the "Galilean" ones). And because Phil Plait does a great job at explaining things further, here's his take on Jupiter's moons. M.

    A little bit of math trivia once again: 3^3+4^3+5^3=6^3=216 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Plato_number.svg Since Plato was the first to (officially, so to speak) notice this, it's called Plato's Number. You know me: Neat! :) M.

    In 1911, the man who would level the playing fields on nuclear weapons was born: Klaus Fuchs gave Stalin's U.S.S.R. the knowledge how to build an atom bomb. He paved the way for MAD - we'll never know if that was a good thing ... There's a new book on him, too; I found the Wikipedia entry...
