We need Aquarian teamwork, Cancerian nurturing, Aries can-do, Leonine playfulness — or to put that in modern terms, we need Aquarian autism, Cancerian hypochondria, Arien sadism and Leonine narcissism.

The Best Book on Asteroids
A few weeks ago, I wrote about the asteroid Hygeia and mentioned that little work had been done on the asteroids in general.
