    Post Climate models turn the weather in Tolkien’s ‘Hobbit’ into science

    I just found this article from 2013 about geographically correct computer simulations of Tolkiens fantasy world. It is very interesting : Climate models turn the weather in Tolkien’s ‘Hobbit’ into science http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/...c-its-science/

    Thumbs up

    I found this satelite simulation point of view from Middle Earth. I don't know if the artist used as reference, the program mentioned on the article above but certainly looks awesome:

    i found this gem a few months ago online, prob a source in the article mentioned above

    http://www.bristol.ac.uk/university/...13-english.pdf

    this quote on the last page really cracked me up..."Los Angeles and western Texas in the USA, and Alice Springs in Australia, have an annual-average climate very similar to that of Mordor."
    "...The Hobbit, a book written for children, has a simple message: Anyone, no matter how small, can do great things. The Bilbo who first leaves on the quest is cowardly, petty, and selfish, but by experiencing the wider world, he finds his courage and compassion. ..."
