Finished guitar! Next time I will (in theory) start from the bare wood and do the painting and the frets and maybe after that (assuming I've had a sanity bypass) I'll start with wood blanks and go the whole hog.

We would like to share this awesome picture of LISA Pathfinder inside a thermal vacuum chamber – a large space simulator if you will, where it is exposed to the extreme temperatures of deep space, including a simulation of the Sun's radiation.

Find out more about what LISA Pathfinder is going to achieve here
http://support.elisascience.org/lisapathfinder.html

LISA Pathfinder, a technology demonstration mission, will launch in 2015. It will be able to test all disturbances that act locally inside a LISA satellite. This accounts for 95% of all LISA noise, since all of the most relevant hardware was designed to meet LISA requirements.

LISA Pathfinder will perform its experimental schedule within three months and results will be available immediately, through real-time data analysis. Specialized software has already been developed and tested.

Almost all of the sophisticated and complex systems of LISA Pathfinder have been delivered and successfully tested. The final flight hardware will be available in fall 2013.

Here we can see just how good #Planck can see... This image compares the Cosmic Microwave Background as seen by ESA's Planck satellite (upper right half) and by its predecessor, NASA's Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (lower left half). With greater resolution and sensitivity over nine frequency channels, Planck has delivered the most precise image so far of the Cosmic Microwave Background.

Best meal (and service) I've ever had. Pricey, but I'd still consider it value for money (esp. the set menu lunch) considering just how *good* everything was. Lovely restaurant (classy but not stiff), friendly/knowledgable staff (including Mr Kitchin himself who came out to greet us) and astounding food. Loved it.

Great South Indian food, attentive helpful staff and not too expensive for the Merchant City.
