Ad Astra e "per aspera ad astram" are different concepts. "Per Aspera ad Astra" is a renown latin sentence, a motto. and is not related or confused with "ad Astra" —Preceding unsigned comment added by TheLoneRanger (talkcontribs) 15:28, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Just for the record, the motto of the state of Kansas is a slight variant of "per aspera ad astra." The motto for KS is "ad astra per aspera." I updated the article to clarify that small point. Tentonbricks (talk) 17:30, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

I just went to Project Gutenberg's edition of the Aeneid and went to Book Nine, Line 640-642 and found this... E'en so some snowy swan, or timorous hare Jove's armour-bearer, swooping from the sky, Grips in his talons, and aloft doth bear.

And XII line 892 is, "A wilding olive on the sward had stood."

I couldn't find "to the stars" in that edition. What's going on?? (talk) 16:34, 11 October 2011 (UTC)NotWillDecker
