I am a bit late on this one given all the fireworks and general merriment of this month have past, none the less I feel the need to post a documentary the BBC did recreating the Guy Fawkes plot. (Background courtesy of Wikipedia for those not familiar with British history.) Except of course, they blow up their life-size replica Houses of Parliament. I didn’t record it when it was first shown 3/4 years ago so I was ecstatic when I found it on youtube, the quality is a little poor but it is phenomenal what that amount of gunpowder could have done.
Welcome Wizards and Warlocks, something a bit special today (although I know I am a bit late with the Halloween reference) – my friend Louise pointed me towards this short youtube video explaining the science behind candles. It is rather interesting actually, so anyone with a love for science (or just pyromania) — enjoy :)
I found a great link to a couple of webcams that actively monitor the Large Hadron Collider experiment. There are currently two cameras available,
- Camera 7: looking at the Underground Experimental Cavern from the Saleve side.
- Camera 8: looking out of the window of the 1st Floor of the SCX building that houses the CMS Control room.
Below is just a screen shot, click through and take a look for yourself :)
Would almost pass as an advert for Command and Conquer Red Alert 3. :)
I can’t believe SciFi / Sky One went ahead with their plans to shelve the second part of the final season until 2009! Bah! Like a crazed junky, I am left clamoring for my BSG-fix – especially with the way the mid-season finale left things!
Anyway, despite being quite frustrated – here is a trailer for the final part of season four which goes a long way to rebuilding my excitement for the last segment, although interestingly, there is talk of another feature length film being considered.
