Year 1992
Publisher Pan Books
ISBN 0330323113



The fifth book in the increasingly inaccurately named Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy

'The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy has, in what we laughingly call the past, had a great deal to say on the subject of parallel universes.  Very little of this is, however, at all comprehensible to anyone below the level of Advanced God, and since it is now well-established that all known gods came into existence a good three millionths of a second after the Universe began rather than, as they usually claimed, the previous week, they already have a great deal of explaining to do as it is, and are therefore not available for comment at this time . . . '

Mostly Harmless: The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy Part Five.  The book that gives a whole new meaning to the word 'trilogy'.





Photos of Saturn from Hubble and Cassini

Saturn Seen from Near and Far
As Saturn grew closer through the eyes of the Cassini spacecraft both Cassini and the Earth-orbiting Hubble Space Telescope snapped spectacular pictures of the planet and its magnificent rings. For the first time, astronomers can compare views of equal-sharpness of Saturn from two very different perspectives.

The view from Hubble, top, taken on March 22, 2004, is so sharp that many individual Saturnian ringlets can be seen.
