Global solar dominance in sight as science trumps fossil fuels - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/comment/ambroseevans_pritchard/10755598/Global-solar-dominance-in-sight-as-science-trumps-fossil-fuels.html … "Solar power has won"; wow (v @NickCohen4)
Solar power will slowly squeeze the revenues of petro-rentier regimes in Russia, Venezuela and Saudi Arabia. They will have to find a new business model, or fade into decline

In awe.
 
The only triple helix staircase in the world.

It is located in the Museo do pobo Galego (Museum of the Galician People) in Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, northwestern Spain.

It spans more than 3 floors and distribute them with a total of 14 doors. But on each floor, the doors are at unequal heights: the floors of the rooms happen to be at different levels. So there are additional stairs linking the rooms of the same "floor".

This is a masterpiece of architecture. I stayed at least 30 minutes looking at it and  trying to make pictures that would convey its exquisite beauty.

Tidal Forces

This illustrates how the Moon causes tides on the Earth.

The Moon’s gravity pulls on each piece of the Earth, but the attractive force is a little stronger on the side facing the Moon, and a little weaker on the side opposite the Moon.  The average force is the force at the center of the Earth.

The arrows at each point show how much the attractive force differs from the average as the Moon circles the Earth. These are the tidal forces, and the result is a bulge in the ocean on opposite sides of the Earth. Earth rotates under these bulges, resulting in about two high tides each 24 hours.

IAS campus in the afternoon sunshine. The view towards Fuld Hall.

I'm here talking with an amazingly varied group of people about questions around the origin of life.

We tried to go for a walk in the woods in the grounds but found ourselves sinking into mud and had to turn back and do circuits on paved paths instead.

Really nice food, and interesting enough to give you something to talk about. I had the crispy lamb belly which was superb, just right for a lunch time.
