  1. Hello,
    I am constructing an astronomy course on an educational website. I like your article on geometry and ancient astronomy and would like to request permission to re-publish this article on my website as an educational resource.
    You would receive full attribution, and the original link would also be included.
    Thank you,
    Joel
