Geocache Description:

NEHLEDEJTE NA UVEDENÝCH SOURADNICÍCH!/ DO NOT SEEK AT THE LISTED COORDINATES!


Ve starovekém Recku lidé verili, že se po smrti odeberou do podsvetí, kde vládne buh Pluto (resp. Hades). Cesta do podsvetí vedla pres reku Acheron (podle Vergilia reku Styx), pres kterou zesnulé duše prevážel do podsvetí prevozník Charon. Tela zemrelých byla pohrbívána s mincí pod jazykem, aby mrtvý mohl zaplatit za prevoz poplatek – obolus. Ten, kdo by nezaplatil, nemohl by nikdy prekrocit reku a dostat se do podsvetí.

Nejvzdalenejsi planeta slunecní soustavy dostala po svém objevení jméno Pluto práve podle boha podsvetí a po objevu jejího nejvetšího mesíce byl tento symbolicky pojmenován Charon. Díky nezvyklé podobnosti ve velikosti obou teles bývají považovány Pluto a Charon za dvojplanetu. Možná víte, že v lednu 2006 byla pro pruzkum Pluta a Charonu vypuštena sonda New Horizons. Než se k nim v roce 2015 priblíží, mužete se sami podívat do jejich blízkosti pomocí výborného realtimového simulátoru vesmíru Celestia, který je zdarma ke stažení. Verím, že se Vám bude líbit .

Jako Pluto a Charon patrí k sobe v mytologii a slunecní soustave, také keš Pluto má ve své blízkosti souputníka Charona (GCNN4M), sama o sobe je dvojitá a dokonce mužete její první cást nalézt dvema zpusoby.

Doplnte císla za písmena v následujících vetách a dostanete souradnice výchozí zastávky.

  • Podsvetím protéká A rek
  • Breh podsveti hlidal tvor s B hlavami.
  • K datu založení kešky astronomové objevili C mesícu planety Pluto.
  • Charon byl objeven v roce DEFG.

Výchozí zastávka je na N50°0 (A+B-1),B(A+2)(A+B) E14°2B,(2*B+1)((A-B)/2)(A+B) nebo na N50°0F,CFG E014°2C,FDG.

Tady najdete schranku obsahujici indicie X a Y vyjadrene poctem otvoru, pricemz X je mensi nez Y. Od souradnic prvni stage odectete XYX pro sever a prictete Y7Y pro vychod a vyrazte pro finalku. Nezapomente na obolus.


In the ancient Greek people believed, that after dead they will come to the underworld, where the god Pluto (or Hades) reigns. The way to the underworld led across the river Acheron (Styx according to Vergil), where the ferryman Charon took the dead for the charge - obolus. That is why the corpses were always buried with the coin underneath their tongue to pay charge to Charon. Those who could not pay had to wander the banks and were never able to cross into the underworld.

According to the god of underworld was named also the furthermost planet of solar system and after dicovering its largest moon it was named Charon. Due to the unusual similarity in size between Pluto and Charon, they are sometimes considered a double planet. You can know that in January 2006 the mission New Horizons was launched for exploring Pluto and Charon. Until the year 2015, when the mission will reach the Pluto and Charon you can explore it yourself with very interesting free real-time space simulator Celestia.I believe you will enjoy it .

As the Pluto and Charon belong to each other (either in mythology or in solar system), also this cache has a "twin" Charon (GCNN4M) and also is double-staged, even you can find the first stage by two ways.

Discover the numbers in sentencies below to find the first stage.

  • There are A rivers in the underworld.
  • The opposite bank of river Acheron was guarded by B-headed creature.
  • Until the cache's date of issue the scientists had found C of Pluto´s moons.
  • Charon was discovered in the year DEFG.

The initial stage is placed at N50°0 (A+B-1),B(A+2)(A+B) E14°2B,(2*B+1)((A-B)/2)(A+B) or at N50°0F,CFG E014°2C,FDG.
You will find a small box containing X and Y expressed by the number of holes, where X is smaller than Y. Subtract XYX from the coordinates of the stage for the north and add Y7Y for the east and go for the cache. Do not forget an obolus
