Forgive the grab bag of things presented today, but these two very different Sphaeralogical issues came to us at around the same time. Interestingly, they both were sent in by our friend John R., a dedicated Sphaeralogist.
The first is a series of links that present the theory of Poincaré's conjecture. A complex mathematical theorem that helps to discribe spheres in 3-dimesional space. At least that's how the small minds at the I.S.S. understood it. Feel free to explore for yourself:
The second was an I.S.S. in the Real World sighting of our friend Chris, wearing his Galaxy Tee proudly at the fine establishment, Cappy's, in Pittsburgh, PA.
Both great Super Ball moments.

Founded in 2011, The International Sphaeralogical Society was created to celebrate the history and dynamism of the Super Ball®. Invented by chemist Norman Stingley in 1965 and sold by the Wham-O Manufacturing Co., the iconic toy has been the subject of fascination and play for almost half a century. The I.S.S. is dedicated to exploring and promoting the allure of this bounciest of balls.
