Don’t Panic!

It’s a tough universe. There’s all sorts of people and things trying to do you, kill you, rip you off, everything. If you’re going to survive out there, you’ve really got to know where your towel is.

Today is Towel Day, an annual celebration of the life and work of Douglas Adams and (especially) The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy started out as a radio series and was first transmitted in 1978. That makes today’s Towel Day, 42 years later, rather special.
