Location: Romano-Guardini-Platz, Mainz, Germany.
Photos: © Albert Hagenaars, 7 February 2016.
Established by: Deutsches Kabarettarchiv, Forum Theater, The town of Mainz, 2004.



In the German town of Mainz, the project 'Stars of Satire' intends to honour the "Besonderen unter den Ausgezeichneten" in the field of cabaret. It consists of bronze tiles with names of the artists on Romano-Guardini-Platz. This square, called after priest and theologian Romano Guardini, is located between the German Cabaret Archives and the Forum Theatre. The signatures of eighty nominees have been engraved in stainless steel.
With this project the initiators want to remember the personalities who, as writers or performers in international cabaret, have animated the artistic process of their genre or participated otherwise in its history, from the foundation of the first cabaret, Le Chat Noir in Paris, on. Supported by founders and sponsors they pay respect to satirists and artists, some of them still alive, whose achievements have proven to be probing enough to keep influencing people all over the world.

The Lomonossow Ridge (Russian: Хребет Ломоносова) is an unusual underwater ridge of continental crust in the Arctic Ocean. It spans 1,800 kilometres between the New Siberian Islands over the central part of the ocean to Ellesmere Island of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. The width of the Lomonossow Ridge varies from 60 to 200 kilometres. It rises 3,300 to 3,700 metres above the 4,200-metre deep seabed. The minimum depth of the ocean above the ridge is less than 400 metres. Slopes of the ridge are relatively steep, broken up by canyons, and covered with layers of silt. The Lomonossow Ridge was first discovered by the Soviet high-latitude expeditions in 1948 and is named after poet/scientist Mikhail Lomonosov.



Lomonossow is a medium crater on Mars, with a diameter close to 150 km. It is located in the Martian northern plains north of the planet's equator. Since it is large and found close (65.9° north) to the boundary between the Mare Acidalium quadrangle and the Mare Boreum quadrangle, it is found on both maps. The topography is smooth and young in this area, hence Lomonosov is easy to spot on large maps of Mars. The crater was named in honour of poet/scientist Mikhail V. Lomonossow in 1973.
