The city includes a Jane Austin Center. Austin is the citie's most famous resident. I would like to think that William Herschel was a famous resident also. Among other things, he built the worlds largest telescope of the time, a 48" reflector with a 40-foot focal length. He discovered the planet Uranus and catalogued many double-star systems and was the first to realize that double-stars were, many times, a binary system. That is, two stars rotating around eachother.
Tomorrow, Roger and I will leave for the North of France. We will visit Stonehenge along the way. That should be very interesting. We will board a ferry at 10:30 p.m. and arrive in France at about 7 a.m. in the morning. We'll spend a couple of days driving south along the battlefields of World War II and visit some of the cities as we go. I'll describe these in more detail later.
