Question: Does the symbol for marathon (the circle with a magnifying glass in it) mean/stand for anything? The reason im asking is because i just noticed it on the new wallpaper with 343GS (in the center of 343 on blue). Maybe this has come up before but i havent noticed... I mean is the symbol something bungie uses frequently or does 343GS have something to do with marathon?

Story-wise, however, it is not significant: Bungie has said that the two stories are not inter-related. The symbol is used many times in Halo: it's hidden not very subtly on the Halo logo itself, it's on Keyes' badge, it's even placed prominently on the side of the Pillar of Autumn. And the control room, when viewed from above, is a sort of "negative" Marathon logo made by the walkway. So it's not really something to get excited about. [quote]the circle with a magnifying glass in it[/quote] What the hell? That's a new description. It's more a circle within a broken circle. The "magnifying glass" is negative space. - Reiginko
