  • Trivia

    • The Infinite Improbability Drive from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy now has its own entry in Wikipedia.

      In a nutshell, the drive enables much faster-than-light space travel and is based on quantum theory. A sub-atomic particle is likely to be in a particular place, but there is also a possibility of it being found light years away. Thus, matter can travel from place to place without passing through the intervening hyperspace, by means of controlling probability.
