Olbers Oil

Dan

Wilhelm Olbers (or, to give him his full just-a-bit-too-long-for-the-front-of-a-CUE-card name*, Heinrich Wilhelm Matthias Olbers) is the man who postulated Olbers' Paradox. If space is infinite, and there are an infinite number of stars out there all projecting light, why are there dark bits in between the stars? Surely any line of sight from Earth should result in a star, no? Does that mean that space isn't infinite?

That is far too much cosmic existentialism for a Sunday morning, so don't worry about it too much. Just know that he's got a card in CUE now, and it's an awesome boost to Mega Math and Watching the Skies.

We've also got a League pack today! It's got three new cards in it, all matching albums that are getting nice big boosts this week - Plotnius, John Dee and Macigicada Cassinii join CUE as the first cards in our Magic and Mysticism themed week!
