One math, many maths :P

I'm sure it's all a matter of perspective, not least when a division of the subject (algebra) can become a mathematical object itself (an algebra).

Well, I'm back. Two planes, many trains, no automobiles whatsoever, and one ferry later, I'm at home again. Normal service (whatever that is!) should now resume.

Greetings from Germany! All is going well so far, except that the wifi at last night's hotel decided to block Exilian (I got a long message in German, ending in "games"!). I contemplated ravaging the hotel with Fire (and, possibly, The Sword*), but eventually decided against, as it's very convenient and does a good breakfast.

* See "1066 And All That". Also, the hotel isn't in Thanet.

Indeed, and likewise what it's had to do to get out to the comet: five times round the sun, and several gravitational slingshots. All with a fixed amount of fuel and fairly limited margin for error. This is rocket science!

EDIT: This xkcd post seems relevant.

Edit 2: As does this one.

 Another BBC article, with a selection of pictures, some very detailed.

Jackson.

(Evidently I learnt something about the US Civil war at some point.)

Meanwhile, I might not be so absent as expected - a couple of experiments have shown that I can read and post here using the browser on my phone. Yay for technology!

As you might have heard, the Rosetta space probe arrived at its target (comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko) today, after a ten-year journey to get it into the right orbit - see this BBC news article. I'm looking forward to the science reports, and also to finding out what the surface of a comet actually looks like.
