This all had to do with the ‘English Reformation‘ when Britain parted company with the Pope and as such the Roman Catholic Church.

This ‘Relief Act’ was a longtime coming.

Another major landmark in British Catholic history.

Still the best known magician and illusionist of all time.

Quite the guy.

Was an aviator too, THOUGH the claim (repeated in the above video) that he was the first to fly a plane in Australia is FALSE.

He died, in Detroit, in 1926 aged 52.

Comet ‘Shoemaker-Levy 9’ That Gave Jupiter Quite The Black Eye Was Discovered This Day, 24-Years Ago.

by Anura Guruge


Jupiter’s gravitational pull broke up the comet way before the fragments went on to strike Jupiter.


From MY BOOK “Comets: 101 Facts & Trivia”. Click to ENLARGE and read here. Click image below for more details of BOOK.



While the discovery per se was NOT big news, the cometary fragments slamming into Jupiter in July 1994 was indeed widely publicized and covered.

I remember watching it on TV.

This is a comet I am quite familiar with.

We learned a lot from it, especially the phenomenon of Jupiter capturing comets before they made it to the Sun.
