In the constellation ofO rion is the bright reddish star Betelgeuse. For centuries it sgirved with other stars as a guide to mariners and as an object for consideration by philosophers and myth makers. Although we still retain the name given to it fay the A rabs and still see it as the rit shoulder of the mighty hunter, science has removed all but the nomenclature of the earlier animistic interpretation i and substituted cold quantitative facts. Since our school days we have known that Betelgeuse is a sun, essentially like that which illuminates our earth. Very recently we have been told by Professor Michelson of Chicago as to its astoxmding magnitude three hundred times the diameter of our own sun. The methods by which he arrived at this relationship involve interesting the( ies and required precise experimentation. Like the newsif. papers, however, of the day following his announcement let us be content for the moment with the fact itself. In the midst of the universe in whidi Betelgeuse is but a speck exists a smaller sun on a planet of which there crawl what Bertrand Russell aptly called tiny lumps of impure carbons and water. What a diock to the ego-centricity of these carbon compounds to realize their quantitative insignificance in comparison with Betelgeuse.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
