Bluedot Festival 2017

I had a great time! Things I did:

  • Looked though a solar telescope and saw sunspots and prominences
  • Held some jars of preserved parasitic worms
  • Saw the Lovell Telescope’s received data being projected back onto it as light and sound
  • Learned stuff about graphene and echinoderms
  • Saw Orbital, Soulwax, Leftfield and Hawkwind, among others

Plus a couple of videos taken on my phone and then compressed even further so the CMS would take them:
