Lovell Telescope 50th

Tonight was the very last of the Jodrell Bank Space 50 events. It involved projecting art work that had won a competition onto the 50 year old Lovell Telescope. The competition had winners in a range of age groups from primary school ages upwards and there were some imaginative entries covering the themes of light, the engineering aspects of

astronomy and space research, space exploration or the history of the Lovell

telescope. The projections were pretty spectacular as they were about 40 metres high on the 76 m diameter dish. It looked impressive.
