Trivia 11/15

trivia 11/15
DID YOU KNOW...
A supernova is a rare celestial phenomenon involving the explosion of a star, resulting in an extremely bright, short-lived object that emits vast amounts of energy. The last supernova to be observed in the Milky Way was seen in 1604 by Johannes Kepler and was used by Galileo, at his trial, as evidence against the presupposition that the universe never changes. Visible to the naked eye, it was brighter at its peak than any other star in the night sky.

TRUTH !!
Canaan Sodindo Banana (5 March 1936 10 November 2003) served as the first President of Zimbabwe from 18 April 1980 until 31 December 1987.
A Methodist minister, he held the largely ceremonial office of the presidency while his eventual successor, Robert Mugabe, served as Prime Minister of Zimbabwe.

During his lifetime, Banana brought together two of the country's political parties, the Zimbabwe African National Union (ZANU) and the Zimbabwe African People's Union (ZAPU), became a diplomat for the Organization of African Unity, and headed the religious department of the University of Zimbabwe.
His later life was complicated by charges of sodomy - a crime in Zimbabwe - which he denied and for which he was later imprisoned.
