Circle or Ellipse ?

Intuitively, it seems to me that there can be no such thing as a circle in reality on this planet or maybe even elsewhere in the universe. Isn't it true that a circle is only an ellipse with the two foci brought together and combined. Even if the foci are separated by one nanometer, it is an ellipse not a circle. Does this mean that a circle is only an academic term in geometry? Some might say that a circle is a different geometric shape than that of an Ellipse, but do the maths, ie bring the two foci together in a ellipse and a theoretical circle is the end result to the best of my knowledge and observation Cheers George :confused:

    This blog reminds me of the maths and i really never wanted to read maths again. Its all about the shapes and the essay writing service reviews are one of the greatest websites. Maths is quite interesting and the concept of circle and ellipse i also very much simple.
