Adolescence brought some reprieve for Georg, allowing him to venture out for frequent nights sleeping under the stars. He conducted experiments on dead animals he found and began diagramming their structures. At the age of 23, Georg wrote a book titled Maps of the Dead and of the Stars. In it, he claimed a correlation between the stars and those animals living on the Earth.
Georg received some acclaim for his later works in biology and astronomy, but never achieved what he felt was a definitive explanation for why he felt the two fields were so very connected. He died at the age of 53 on a voyage to the southern glaciers.
