Hello, so here is what it looks like out on the roof. Perhaps it will help you understand why I think it’s such an extraordinary location for a telescope.
Workmen had been using the dome as a place to hide. I found beer cans and adult interest magazines in there as well as chalk graffiti on the walls. The worst thing was they had left the hatch open in the rain, so the first thing we did was to secure it and lock it up so it doesn’t deteriorate any more than it already has. One day I will tell you what history I know about it.
We had Simon from the Widescreen Centre just off Baker St (yes that Baker St) come over and have a look around and he says he’s seen worse so that’s good. Now we have a Celestron 14″ diameter telescope on order, at least I think we do, I’ve never ordered anything so expensive before so I don’t know if I filled the forms in right. We’ll see. more photos below
Is it obligatory to whisper when passing the grad students, or are you just being considerate?
It’s supposed to be obligatory, but some of my colleagues are Greeks and Italians… I try to be considerate when I can.
hey, the uni looks like any modern-day office. What a change from ULB!!
it is very corporate isn’t it! It’s not ideal but architects do strange things. I have a big office because I am admissions tutor and I have to entertain.
The most uncanny thing to me was how much it looked just like level 6. (More importantly, I wonder if I should ask for a bigger office….)
well we used to have three big offices reserved for admissions, graduate and senior tutor but it all went wrong at some point…
BTW I think I just removed the necessity to be moderated in the comments section, but I don’t know if it will work.
Did you find the Blair Witch?
Pity. It felt like it was all building up to it. 😛
Will contractors still have access to the Nobel prize winning shed ?
