A quotation for today

Simon Newcomb (1835 - 1909)

Ten decimal places of π are sufficient to give the circumference of the earth to a fraction of an inch, and thirty decimal places would give the circumference of the visible universe to a quantity imperceptible to the most powerful microscope.

Quoted in D MacHale, Comic Sections (Dublin 1993)
