You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,

Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.

Alpha Centauri is not the closest star to earth! That's Proxima Centauri -- unless I'm severely mistaken, but I'm pretty sure I'm not. (IIRC Proxima Centauri forms a triple star system with the much larger Alpha and Bèta Centauri, and I think Alpha Centauri was the nearest star which was actually visible from earth)


(Edit: Looked it up on Wikipedia, the name of the complete system is actually Alpha Centauri, and it consists of three stars, Alpha Centauri A, Alpha Centauri B (which together appear as a single, bright star in the sky), and Proxima Centauri -- also, but less frequently called Alpha Centauri C, which is indeed the nearest star, but not visible from earth.)

That's not entirely correct - it's Proxima Centauri. But it might be a part of the Alpha Centauri System, that's not sure yet, as far as I know

They're part of one star system, and Wikipedia says that both are the closest to our sun. :? They're both about the same distance away, relatively speaking (which is still really far). I think we should jsut move along with my question. :)

Actually Wikipedia says this:
Popularly known, Alpha Centauri is the closest star system to our Solar System. It lies about 4.37 light-years in distance, or about 41.5 trillion kilometres, 25.8 trillion miles or 277,600 AU. Astronomer Thomas James Henderson made the original discovery from many exacting observations of the trigonometric parallaxes of the AB system between April 1832 and May 1833. He withheld the results because he suspected they were too large to be true, but eventually published in 1839 after Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel released his own accurately determined parallax for 61 Cygni in 1838.[29] For this reason, we consider Alpha Centauri as the second star to have its distance measured.
R.T.A. Innes from South Africa in 1915 discovered Proxima Centauri by blinking photographic plates taken at different times during a dedicated proper motion survey. This showed the large proper motion and parallax of the star was similar in both size and direction to those of α Centauri AB, suggesting immediately it was part of the system and slightly closer to us than α Centauri AB. Lying 4.22 light-years away, Proxima Centauri is the nearest star to the Sun. All current derived distances for the three stars are presently from the parallaxes obtained from the Hipparcos star catalog (HIP).
On http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpha_Centauri

It says Alpha Centauri is the closest star system though, but Proxima Centauri is the closest star.

Okay, so Proxima's closest. I was close enough. :P The question's been answered multiple times now, so we might as well move on.

Ptolemy (or Ptolemaeus, or whichever variation of his name you prefer) is right. So Matze can go on with the next one.

And I already was hoping someone would answer Galilei or Copernicus, so I could reply with "Haha, you misread it, I wrote geocentrical and not heliocentrical."

:D

Probably, but it´s not the correct answer.

At least to my knowledge a participation of said secret society (hint, hint) is only rumored.

Damnit, what was the name of the secret society/order involved with the Roman Catholic church again.

(Hrm, I'm probably giving it away now, but ah well...)

It's always either the Illuminati, the Freemasons, the Knights Templar, or this secret Catholic order thingy of which I can't recall the name right now. :lol:

there was some secret serbian underground organisation, and they were called Black Hand or something like that, as far as I remember.

Secret Catholic oragnition? Do you speak of opus dei? Can't be responsible for the assasination, they were founded around 1920 or so...

Hm yes, that's the one. But they're out, it seems. (And it seems that you're right with the Black Hand)
You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.
-- Martin Walkyier

Also, Balrogs have wings.
