Good mind blowing fun!


Giant Lovell radio telescope at Jodrell Bank to become space light show
wrote:
The UK's largest radio telescope - the Lovell telescope at Jodrell Bank in Cheshire - is being turned into a light and sound show.

For the first time since 2019, at the Bluedot festival, the giant radio telescope will take centre stage.

Images from space, including some stunning pictures from Nasa's James Webb Space Telescope will be beamed on to its 249ft (76m) dish.

"We'll use that dish as a huge film screen," said Prof Teresa Anderson...

... Prof Anderson and her husband, the physicist Prof Tim O'Brien from University of Manchester, co-founded the festival and have created an accompanying a soundtrack using recordings from space.

The show they developed for the Lovell telescope is called Sky's Eye View...



That is just one part of a fantastic fun festival there!

Enjoy!!

Enjoying a beneficial symbiosis:


Beaver dams in east Devon create area of wetland amid drought
wrote:
A network of dams built by beavers in Devon has helped to maintain an area of wetland despite a drought in the South West...

... a five-year study ending in 2020 which explored the impact of beavers on the countryside. The trial found a number of benefits and the beavers have been allowed to continue living in the area...

... Matt Holden, Devon Wildlife Trust's Beaver Project manager, said there were pros and cons to beavers and their dams.

He said: "Whilst beavers create benefits society-wide, we recognise the impact of those are compounded on a few individuals, often land owners and those in charge of infrastructure. "Those impacts can be localised flooding, which can restrict access to land like farmland and losses of crops."

He added: "There are costs of managing beavers, but the benefits outweigh those costs."...



A little less greed for exploiting the land can go a long way to help everyone, including the greedy landowners themselves...


Enjoy!
