Absolutely incredible. 
Harry Potter and the Quidditch Cup: A Lego stop motion film made by a friend. 

It is 17 minutes long, so there's a short trailer here: http://youtu.be/Lpfi0oALWNk?list=UURfiggAacsf9XWb6zHFJahA

It took about 18 months to make, and consists of over 26,000 individual frames. My friend guessed that it took about 1000 hours to make.

There are some 'making of' pictures here: https://plus.google.com/109767895390898511666/posts/M7XswE2WkJJ

Enjoy!

Poster Conference

Tomorrow I am presenting my work at the University of Birmingham Graduate School Research Poster Conference, which is open to any member of the university or the public to come along and find out what it is that the university does. If I see you there, then thanks for coming! This post is intended to be a collection of interesting links for those who are interested in learning more.

Firstly an electronic copy of the poster can be found here: http://goo.gl/yYCQTY

Hyperphysics has a good introduction to nuclear physics and related topics:

in particular nuclear structure:

An introduction to the topic of clustering in nuclei, albeit aimed at those with a physics background, can be found on Scholarpedia:

http://www.scholarpedia.org/article/Clusters_in_nuclei

For the really keen an interactive chart of the nuclides can be found on the website of the National Nuclear Data Centre:

A video illustrating how it relates to the periodic table of the elements, created by Sean Liddick, can be found here:

I am pleased to announce this years, 'official', Christmas song. 

I thought it was going to be hard to follow 2011s, 'When the Thames Froze' (Smith & Burrows) and 2012s 'This Ain't New Jersey' (Smith & Burrows) but, fortunately for you, I've managed to find you another brilliant track:

'Funny Looking Angels' (Smith & Burrows)
