*This connecting line is under dispute by astronomers. The constellation of Reliquum has a somewhat auspicious history—after the rest of the sky had been partitioned into the officially recognized constellations, Reliquum was quite literally made up of the stars that were left over. Younger astronomers have pointed out that Reliquum resembles the number 42; older astronomers think this is a ridiculous shape for a constellation, because the number forty-two has no mythical, mystical, or astronomical significance whatsoever.
