Globus Cassus

I've spent most of the weekend on Wikipedia, doing research for the Space Opera (and really, is there any better exemplar of the internet's promise realized than Wikepedia?), and have been learning all kinds of great stuff. The concept that's been ringing my bell the last little while is Christian Waldvogel's Globus Cassus. How have I not heard of this before?

Yup, Wikipedia is awesome. It's very easy to get lost among its plethora of entries for hours on end. In fact, I'll confess to having an entire Firefox bookmark folder that consists entirely of miscellaneous Wikipedia articles...
