“waiting for tomorrow all of my life…”

You may be wondering why there hasn’t been an update yet with regards to the telescope, perhaps you think I am deep in an optical laboratory trying to align a mirror or something. In fact I’m just trying to get a key for the roof from estates so I can go up there without assistance. They were supposed to meet me this morning but that’s been postponed.

There is one update and it is significant, the cash that we won from the KCL teaching fund (thankyou) actually seems to exist and a University account has been set up, so I can start buying stuff soon.

Meanwhile I am trying to finish two papers and get a third started. I will post pictures when that happens (this week? next week?) and I will post about my papers when they come out. In the meantime you can prepare yourself for the photos with these two web-pages…
