Sun spots

“Leaping to escape the tower, Icarus felt a rush of exhilaration as the wings his father Daedalus had crafted bore him upward on the wind. Alas, in a fit of hubris Icarus decided to continue upward to approach the glowing sun. The heat melted the wax holding the wings’ feathers in place, and Icarus plunged to his death in the sea.” —from the Greek myth of Icarus, 1st century BC
