Ayatollah

things up my alley, so to speak

A Renaissance mystery: "How was it that a German priest writing in Latin and living in a French city far from the coast became the first person to tell the world that a vast ocean lay to the west of the American continents?"

The second moon race heats up.

I'm unnaturally excited by this new atlas, also.

Neat. On the ground at Mount Etna.
