Discworld has been the subject of much controversy, particularly because of its obsession with a style of music that most people hate. Zecariah Endrikat, a scientist and spokesperson for NASA, has been quoted as saying, "The Discworld is an impossibility. It contradicts the laws of physics, biology, and Argentina (which forbid turtles larger than 12 metres in diameter). It cannot exist. It should not exist. And, when the government approves our funding for the development of a long range nuclear missile, it will not exist either".
However, some scientists, including biologist Fred Jones, say otherwise. According to Jones, "All life found on the surface of Discworld is able to flawlessly perform the cha cha and this remarkable feat deserves to be preserved. Others say this is just further evidence that Dr Endrikat's plan is a good one.
There has been very little exploration of Discworld to date, a fact that might have had something to do with Discworld being about 35 billion miles away from the Earth. However, some exploration has been done by famed anthropologist and biographer Terry Pratchett.
Pratchett, who previously worked at a nuclear power plant, had mutated to the extent that he could travel to Discworld in a matter of minutes. He used this talent to research the world and write a series of books documenting his travels there.
The books are known for their bland and humorless recitation of the facts as well as their unhealthy obsession with orangutans. Jane Goodall has been quoted as saying "I like orangutans along with all other monkeys and all. but the man has got to know when to stop". Reports that Goodall was nearly beaten to death by a mysterious ape who emerged from between the shelves of her personal library remain unconfirmed.
