Cass A[edit]

Should there be a link to "Cassiopeia A" from this page - there is a reverse link from that page, but I could not find this supernova remnant mentioned on this page?

Cassiopeia = The Empress[edit]

Cassiopeia stands for the female "Hanged Man" and also the Seated Empress/goddess in the Valley/Throne/Chalice, who is more beautiful than the others. Of course this has been ridiculed by the patriarchy, just as so many other strong female arcehtypes.

Cassiopeia rules - and she was not vain but sure of her worth (which was considered a threat to the male ego!) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:35, 20 August 2008 (UTC) cassiopeia was very boastful. she thought that her daughter was more beautiful than the Neireds. but what she didn't know was that one of the Neireds were married to Poisiedon. When Andromeda was going to marry Perseus, perseus cut medusa's head off and turned everybody to stone at his wedding, including cassiopeia. Then poseidon put cassiopeia into the sky and her husband, daughter, and Perseus. But, to humiliate cassiopia, he made it to wear sometimes she was up side down. -- (talk) 18:12, 29 January 2009 (UTC) Rachael.

Cassiopeia A is approximately 300 years old[edit]

From the article "Cassiopeia A is approximately 300 years old"? Should this be corrected? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:40, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

An IP had changed this to "300 million years", which is plainly wrong. "300 years" is approximately correct but only in the sense of disregarding the time light took to travel from it. I tried to clarify this. (talk) 09:01, 7 July 2011 (UTC)
