I have problems in just walking, due to my spine and its osteoarthritis. I can bicycle, though. Just to raise my morale I received a Statement of participation from Diderot University in Paris in its Gravitation online course with a 98/100 score.

Races against time are a folly in the mountains. You must climb slowly and feel like a part in a greater being. Nous sommes des parts d'une grand construction dont il faut plus de temps, plus de silence and plus de recul pour decouvrir l'assemblage. (A. de Saint Exupery, Pilote de guerre).

A network of six radio telescopes in the millimeter band on 4 continents, including the South Pole, and Hawaii will try to get an image of the event horizon in Sagittarius A, the nucleus of our Galaxy, and M87. SGRA is a radio source emanating from a black hole of 4 million Sun masses, while M87 has a much bigger black hole, of 6 billion Sun masses. Two nights will be devoted to the observation of each source, a long period especially for the ALMA millimeter array in Chile which is in heavy demand. The data collected by each telescope will be merged in a computer center and this will take months of processing, so the images should be available within 2018.

Peter Sagan is always unpredictable. But he knows how to steer a bicycle. I am waiting for the Milano-Sanremo to see him sprinting. I wonder of they will cross the Manie highland, where the road goes down to Finale Ligure with many turns that make cyclists fall. I know that highland and its many cliffs used by rockclimbers. There is also the Grotta delle Fate which contained bones of a Neolithic man. The trail to that Grotta is not signaled, they don't want tourists to soil it with cans or remains of food. I was shown the trail near the first of 5 Roman bridges (Ponte delle Fate) in the Valle dei Ponci leading to the Church of San Giacomo.

Rohan Dennis, Australia, wins the last stage of Tirreno-Adriatico, a time race at San Benedetto del Tronto and is second after Nairo Quintana in the final standing. Thibaud Pinot, who was second , is third. Peter Sagan skips a woman walking her dog into a time race and saves himself from a possible fall. Next Saturday, he will be the one to follow in the Milano-Sanremo. Quintana has gone home waiting for the Giro 100th edition which will start in Sardinia, home of Fabio Aru.

Yesterday I wrote that the third arrived, Jasper Stuyvens, was from Belgium. I had to guess since Italian RAI TV gives little time to lists of runners and gives much time to a woman, Alessandra di Stefano, who comments bicycle races doing a lot of talking. Last night, in my sleep, I had a hint. He is from Denmark. If this is true, this is a case of extra sensorial perception..
