    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Giuliano reveals to Sarah Jane Smith that he secretly believes that the world is round, as do a growing number of scientists. This is historically inaccurate. The spherical nature of the Earth was common knowledge and not at all heretical; even the Church held the Earth to be round. The remark is probably meant as a clever reference to Columbus' discovery of the New World the same year, but in fact it is a popular myth that he proved the Earth to be round. The real reason people had laughed at Columbus wasn't because they thought the Earth was flat; it was because they knew from scientific measurements that the Earth was so big that a journey to Asia would be so long that the crew would starve to death. As it happens, they were right; Columbus just got lucky and found an undiscovered continent shortly before his crew would have run out of supplies. He died thinking he had found the East Indies.
