Chapter 15 Summary

This chapter is an Excerpt from Ford's Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, page 634784, Section 5a. Entry: Magrathea. It tells of a time when the Empire was first forged, when "men were real men, women were real women, and small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri were real small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri." In those days, men returned home very rich from doing mighty deeds and Magrathea became the center for a new industry: custom-made luxury planet building. Eventually the system broke down, due to inequities between rich and poor, and the memory of Magrathea became a legend that no one actually believes any longer.
