Astronomers Humor: Part 1

Scientists are often portrayed as not having much of a sense of humor and being very dry. So I'm going to start up another series of blog posts highlighting amusing tidbits I've seen in journal articles.

The first one is a LotR reference: A journal article begins the title with, "One Simulation to Fit Them All".

The second for today is a computer code meant for analyzing stellar evolution written by Lesaffre et al. (2006). Its name is "FLASH_THE_TORTOISE".
