Good things come to those who wait...:

Being interested in astronomy I've used this theme in quite a few blog posts. Hodges' model cannot only act as a repository for a constellation of ideas - the model is up there in the constellations - in several forms including - The Southern Cross, Crux.

I thought about the Milky Way, but was disappointed about the scope for finding Hodges' model there on two counts:

  1. we (and more especially our children) can hardly see the Milky Way such is the light pollution;
  2. the Milky Way does not reflect Hodges' model - which axis would it be?
Then I realised:
One day, there will be two bands of star dust across the night sky (c/o APOD):

It just goes to show you... good things come to those who wait...
