Chapter 173 Summary

Chapter 173 consists of less than a full page of text and two illustrations. In the text, Christopher examines the Constellation Orion, commonly called “The Hunter.” He explains that, if you connect the stars with different lines and borrow a couple of stars from Gemini, you can also make it look like a bunch of grapes, Jesus or a bicycle, except they didn’t have bicycles when the Romans and Greeks named it Orion. With his pictures, Christopher demonstrates how, by connecting Orion’s stars one way it does look like a hunter, but with different lines, it looks like a dinosaur.

Chapter 173 Analysis
