    PS Mordred --- I'm sure that Rhawn Joseph from your other thread will find a way to blame it on an alien life form over looked by NASA :wink:

    See how the corners are rounded? This, finally, explains why the the main hex nut was not tightened down enough to keep the out layers of the planet attached to the surface, resulting in rings of loose material flung out around the planet. Fairly sloppy on the alien engineer's part: "ring around the planet" and all that...
