Samantha Cristoforetti posted this image on her Flickr page and said the family of Douglas Adams gave the crew permission to do the photo-shoot for this poster, and added that the Point-of-View gun is not Photoshopped, but a real creation. May friendship and humour reign in Earth as in space – the perfect antidote to banal, meaningless, retrograde hostility.

Dear readers, yesterday, while I was editing, re-editing and writing my next blog posts found an extraordinary short paper by John Mc McKay and Yang-Hui He.
Recently, the so called Mock modularity appears in black hole state counting (DMZ) and in the computation of the elliptic genus of non-compact sigma models (Troost, Ashok, Eguchi, Sugawara).
If not, maybe you could dowload this one from mine (my pics are free), and with some image software fix it to your requirements.
It has now been thirty years since October 12, 1979 when The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy novelization of a popular British radio series, first saw print.
More interesting and way way less contrived is that it takes 42 minutes to travel through a tunnel, through planet earth, from any point to any other if using gravity as the only means of propulsion. As a final step before posting your comment, enter the letters and numbers you see in the image below. NASA has been creating some great posters for their missions and Expedition crews to the International Space Stations, and this newest one will warm the heart of any Douglas Adams fan. Previously she served as UT's Senior Editor and lead writer, and has worked with Astronomy Cast and 365 Days of Astronomy. Essentially, it is a striking link between two very different branches of mathematics: finite group theory and modular forms. Remarkably, note that the Avogadro constant is about , so the number of elements of the Monster is more or less a million of times the Avogadro constant SQUARED!
There is a simple physical explanation for the tension between holomorphy and modularity in these examples.

The book is timed to coincide with the 10th anniversary of Adams’s death this spring. The world’s first book printed with movable type is the Gutenberg Bible which has 42 lines per page. The youngest president of the United States,Theodore Roosevelt, was 42 when he was elected. The Bell-X1 rocket plane Glamorous Glennis piloted by Chuck Yeager, first broke the sound barrier at 42,000 feet. The atomic bomb that devastated Nagasaki, Japan, contained the destructive power of 42 million sticks of dynamite. On page 42 of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Jonathan Harker discovers he is a prisoner of the vampire. Samuel Johnson compiled the Dictionary of the English Language, regarded as one of the greatest works of scholarship.
The element molybdenum has the atomic number 42 and is also the 42nd most common element in the universe. Cell 42 on Alcatraz Island was once home to Robert Stroud who was transferred to The Rock in 1942. In the Book of Revelation, it is prophesised that the beast will hold dominion over the earth for 42 months. When the growing numbers of Large Hadron Collider scientists acquired more office space recently, they named their new complex Building 42. 42 is the favourite number of Dr House, the American television doctor played by Hugh Laurie. Best Western is the world’s largest hotel chain with more than 4,200 hotels in 80 countries. Douglas Adams, our icon of humorous geek literature, would write four sequels to it, and would, tragically die of a heart attack at the age of 49.

As we all know, 42 is the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything.
In particular, the original moonshine conjecture applied to the biggest sporadic finite group, the Monster group M and the so called modular (invariant) form.
Furthermore, note that the estimated number of protons in the observable Universe is around , therefore, the Monster group elements is really a big number…Not far away from that cosmological and fundamental number!
This thing is some kind of mathematical object invariant under the group , the group of projective special linear transformations of 2×2 matrices with entries in the integers (). The moonshine connection was finally proved by Richard Borcherds using tools from string theory, and his invention of the Vertex Operator Algebras (VOA) !
Simply put, continuous spectrum is not holomorphic but discrete spectrum IS, and both are “mapped” somehow by certain kind of modular transformation that mixes these two types of spectra, more precisely, mock (modular) transformations do exist connecting the states of the discrete and the continuum worlds! The author himself rather undermined the myriad analyses when he dismissed them all with the simple answer that the choice of the number was a joke. In it, comedian Griff Rhys Jones mentions the 42nd meeting of the Crawley and District Paranoid Society. And on the same page of Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein reveals he is able to create life.
The programmers then embark on a further ten-million-year program to discover The Ultimate Question but the process is hindered after eight million years by the unexpected arrival on Earth of the Golgafrinchans and then is ruined completely, five minutes before completion, when the Earth is destroyed by the Vogons to make way for a new Hyperspace Bypass. Once again, art anticipates science: after pondering the weighty question of the mass of the Milky Way galaxy, astronomers have come up with an answer: 42! Our galaxy weighs three times 10 to the power of 42 kilograms - a number written as 3 followed by 42 zeroes.It seems esoteric but knowing the weight of the galaxy - the amount of matter it contains - is key to solving the nature of so-called dark matter.
