I like astronomy in a non-technical, sub-amature, non-math sort of way ...and yet, I knew this number (and was surprised I remembered it!) I keep track of odd ball theoretical stuff from the days when my ex actually had a job -- although trained in astro-physics, he never had a job doing that....and seems to find darts much more rewarding now that we're divorced. Poor thing, a Brit trapped in America (he..he..he, ha, ha - sorry not vindictive, REALLY!).

I get out the 8" Schmidt Cassagrain (sorry, spelling) for my 7 & 6 year old sons to view things occasionally...although I think the mirrors need recolumnation.

Thanks for the argument factor info...booo to radians.
