In other news, Bob Iger has returned as CEO of Disney, replacing his successor Bob Chapek, effective immediately, surprising everyone except those who have been listening to Bob Iger over the past few years, since just about every word out of his mouth has had the subtext of "I regret leaving and want to return because Chapek isn't doing what I would have done."

New Roman Emperor confirmed: Sponsian
An ancient gold coin proves that a third century Roman emperor written out of history as a fictional character really did exist, scientists say.

The coin bearing the name of Sponsian and his portrait was found more than 300 years ago in Transylvania, once a far-flung outpost of the Roman empire.

Believed to be a fake, it had been locked away in a museum cupboard.

Now scientists say scratch marks visible under a microscope prove that it was in circulation 2,000 years ago.
The full piece is a trip if that's your jam. Or marmalade even.
The best thing that Neil Armstrong ever did, was to let us all imagine we were him.
