As Jacob Bronowski, the author of the Ascent of Man, felt - Science follows art, and here also science follows art with a twist of comedy. Here I paint a solar eclipse. The Moon is moving toward blocking our Sun but fantasy dictates that the "girl in the moon" lets us know that the moon is, in fact, made of green cheese, and that the Sun is fading so eventually we'll all freeze.
Well perhaps. However Science might react more quickly than usual and find a "warm" solution.
