509: Connect the picture of the battlefield to the horse and the dish.

508: The picture of the book lying amidst broken glass is a photograph from the infamous Tiger Woods automobile mishap. The book is the physics tome “Get a Grip on Physics” by John Gribbin. Gribbin, a science writer with a dozens of books on popular science to his credit, shot up on Amazon rankings as a result of curious people buying his books after spotting “Get a Grip..” in the photograph. Allegedly, in a February 1988 article in Nature, Gribbin was the first person to suggest that the greenhouse effect might be reduced by adding iron to the oceans as a “fertiliser”. This concept of “Iron Fertilization” has gained currency in recent years among climate researchers as a potential method to reverse global warming.
