Polaris is a star in the northern circumpolar constellation of Ursa Minor, commonly called the North Star. Well-known for centuries as a stable point in the sky, we could say that Polaris has high graph centrality, that countless observers from Ptolemy to Thomas the Tank Engine have affected humanity’s story.
To know your North Star, measure enduring relationships.
May all your central stars be shining bright!
