Space stuff

I had a great time at JFS School, speaking to 300 members of the senior school, and chatting to some of them afterwards over sandwiches.  I did cover popular economic and political fallacies, as I suggested.

Meanwhile in Cambridge the rocket boys of Cambridge University Spaceflight were launching Nova 24, an edge-of-space balloon which tests new telemetry and photographs the Earth from above the atmosphere.  They successfully tracked it and recovered it, so well done, guys.

They are meeting in the Engineering Dept this evening to explain their work on balloons and rockets to interested freshers (and to eat lots of pizza afterwards).
