Jodrell Bank LivePosted: July 18, 2011
On Saturday 2nd July I, and several thousand over people headed to Jodrell Bank for a unique event: Jodrell Bank Live. Their tagline “where music meets science” meant we’d be treated to sets from, among others, OK Go, British Sea Power and the amazing Flaming Lips, interspersed with sciency bits featuring their fancy new visitor centre and the giant Lovell Telescope (the dish that I’d happily take home with me if I could). I’ve been meaning to write about this since I got back, but I couldn’t figure out how to convey what happened. Luckily for me though they’ve made a highlights movie:
The part at the end where the crowd chant “science, science, science” came after Dr Tim O’Brien taught everyone about pulsars. It was strangely moving!
