Scientists using NASA’s RHESSI spacecraft have measured the roundness of the sun with unprecedented precision. They find that it is not a perfect sphere.Who in our day is surprised to learn that the sun is imperfect? Who? You? No, no. What would shock us to a million bits is the very opposite: that sun is a perfect shape, a perfect star at the center of a perfect system of planets, the third of which is just perfect for the final creation of the perfect form of life, the human being, the animal that looks up at the sky to find things that are like itself: bright and perfect.
