A new Newton?

Text message from Carolyn:

At Jodrell Bank, Chloe asked the astronomer why the sun was in the middle and the other planets all went round it!

A pretty awesome question, considering Chloe is only five. Actually, it's a pretty awesome question whatever her age. Next thing you know, she'll be wondering what it would be like to ride on a beam of light.

(I did, of course, point out for Carolyn's benefit that the sun isn't, in fact, a planet; it's a newspaper, allegedly.)
