In Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, 42 is the number from which all meaning ("the meaning of life, the universe, and everything") could be derived.

 

A BBC radio script based on Adams' book contains the following lines:

 

The angle at which light reflects off of water to create a rainbow is 42 degrees.

Two physical constants in the universe are the speed of light and the diameter of a proton. It takes light 10 to the minus 42nd power seconds to cross the diameter of a proton.

The sum of the ordinal alphabetic positions of the initials (SPG) for Stan (P.) Gibilisco, an oft-published science and technology writer, is equal to 42 (S=19, P=16, G=7).

A barrel holds 42 gallons.

42 is also, strangely enough, the number of roads a man must walk down... :thats-funny:
