Hemi-Anechoic Chamber Control Room... obviously I know exactly what it is!

After all the excitement of yesterday and a shoulder injury due to carry nearly 10kgs of kit over one shoulder, I will be using my iPhone camera for the next few days! (Medical evidence on FaceBook - https://www.facebook.com/186301661422523/photos/a.190144021038287.67466.186301661422523/742459429140074/?type=1&theater )

We visited the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) today as it is their biennial opening to the public. I’ll admit that I didn’t take Physics as an O’ level option and failed chemistry which I know was somewhat a disappointment to my Dad who was an analytical chemist! I think he was prepared though when he was asking me about ‘valencies and moles’ the day before my exam and I described small furry creatures that dig tunnels.

The NPL is fascinating and especially so as it is one of the few laboratories in the world that has a ‘caesium fountain clock’ that generates the most accurate time that many clocks are calibrated from (todays interesting fact!).

No idea what this is, but it is very cool! Great light and shadows! Sorry to hear about your shoulder hope it gets better soon.

Like Dianne, I don't know what this is, but I love the pattern and the lighting. Fav. Hope your shoulder heals quickly!
