The title of the emperor of the Roman Empire after the fall of the Roman Republic. It was Julius Caesar's adopted nephew, Agustus, that was the first to carry that title. Agustus Caesar was the first true emperor of the Roman Republic.
Ave Caesar, morituri te salutant. (Hail Caesar, those who are about to die salute you.)
A phrase the Roman gladiators said before they did battle in the emperor's presence.
A television show originally spawned by Gene Roddenberry. It Is the greatest science fiction show ever produced. It, unlike nearly every other science fiction show or movie, relies on a cerebral approach to solve a poblem rather than a gun, something that is very twoubling in today's science fiction. Star Wars posesses a James Bond sort of quality of shoot, shoot again, shoot some more, blow up something, kill billions of people only to be redeemed by saving one.
It is a great travesty that after the murder of billions, Vader was redeemed by saving the life of one, his son, who also killed billions all in the name of an equally imperialistic cause. Star Trek would never allow that.
An ancient country in the Balkan region inhabited mainly by the Slavic people. A number of times during its history, Bulgaria dominated the Balkans. The two Bulgarian empires dominated a large amount of land including much of Greece. The first Bulgarian Empire took the city of Constantinople twice, however the generals were bribed and the city was never oficially conquered. The first Bulgarian Empire collapsed after it was weakened by the Mongols and the second because of the Ottoman invasion. Bulgaria secured its independence during the late 19th century after they defeated the armies of the weakend Ottoman Empire. Bulgaria has alot of culture and history. It was two Bulgarian monks, Qiril and his brother, that ceated the cyrillic alphabet. The same alphabet that was later adopted by Russia. Because of centuries of Ottoman rule the spirit of the Bulgarian people is not a strong as it was. It will take time to recover the former strength of the Bulgarian people.
The first Bulgarian Empire could have ruled Europe, was it not for the bribery of the Byzantine politicians.
An immense collection of very light elements. A star is over 95% hydrogen with trace amounts of helium, oxygen, carbon, and other heavy elements. The star derives its energy from a thermonuclear reaction initieted by the pressure created by the gravitational pull of the gasses inward. A star will burn for millions if not billions of years before the hydrogen supply is depleted and the star's nuclear fusion reaction fails. The star will then explode and remove an outer layer of gasses and then collapse into a dense state. Average stars collapse into Dwarf Stars while massive ones form neutro stars of black holes.
Fusion is the binding of two or more things, tangible or intangible, into something new that posesses properties of both. In physics it is the binding of two or more elements of the same or different kind to creat a new one. Fusing 2 hydrogen atoms results in the creation of a helium atom.
The greatest politician and tactitions of the Roman era, Julius Caesar engaged in a series of wars is Gaul, moder day France occupied by a number of barbarian tribes.

A utopia is the ideal state of society in which every human need is adressed. The is no social or physical deprivity and humanity is free to grow and flourish at its leisure. There is no opression, war, poverty, famine, or social distress or racism. Although it is higly unlikely that humanity will reach a true utopia it is possible to better living conditions to be close to one.
It would be entierly possible to achieve a social state close to that of a utopia by the complete mechanization of labor and production. If all goods and services are produced by robots, humanity will be free from the maintenece of infrastructure and thus be able to rid itsself from all of the things mentioned above, something remenicient of the book Utopia by Issac Asimov
