  1. I'll be following this thread with interest and learn. How long did it take to generate this spectrum? Roughly.... Just downloaded Spectroscopic Atlas from Richard Walkers's page. Shame the tutorial is not in English
  2. No, we don't! But it might be good for promoting SGL and for those who prefer Facebook to forums. I closed my Facebook account a few months ago as I did not like the way Facebook works and did not have the time to go *also* onto Facebook. I'm struggling to keep up with the forums as it is, let alone going onto Facebook. (I've been listening to the audio version of the story about Facebook: interesting story and look at Facebook now. WoW!Amazing! -- sorry, I've digressed )
  3. Downloading now from iPlayer. Cheers!
  4. In terms of 'doom & gloom' I think that the series 'Planets', also on iPlayer (it's gone now ) fares much better and the background music is not cheerful at all. Really depressing In terms of content, 'Planets' has a lot more information than 1st episode of 'Wonders of Universes'. But what's wrong with explaining the public about entropy' ??? Should the general public be 'protected' by lingo mostly known to those who've had a short encounter with Physics or Chemistry? I don't think so. As long as the explanation is clear and not overwhelming, then knowlege can never be too much In my humble opinion of course ...
  5. It's been ideal for me after today's Maths test A little slow to put the message across - Time, entropy, how the Universe will end, et all - but the show was filled with stunning images that I wish I had a large screen TV. A piece of photographic art on TV, I should say. Very well done. No, I don't think that this episode was about all doom & gloom, rather it appears to me that Dr Cox is laying the foundations for the next episode which, hopefully, will be a bit more dynamic, not as slow.
  6. It's on iPlayer and downloading it now-YeY I'll be watching it tomorrow I will need to chill out after Maths test
  7. I've just noticed that the new series by Dr Brian Cox is on tonight, on BBC2, at 9pm. Click there for details --> BBC - BBC Two Programmes - Wonders of the Universe I don't watch TV so I'll have to wait for episodes to be made available on iPlayer...hope so... All those who'll be watching tonight's first episode, 'Destiny', enjoy
  8. Sure, let's go .... it's going to take lots of buskin before I can book the trip
  9. The sun is shining brightly here in London so we might have clear skies tonight. Would we see some Northen Lights here in the South....???
  10. Start thinking, here's your chance to solve a big problem Will you find out if you watch the program? Don't know but give it a go. You don't have to ....
  11. Watch this by Dr Maggie Adering-Pocock. It's great! Sorry I'm getting both excited and emotional about this.... Left-click here-->BBC iPlayer - Do We Really Need the Moon?
  12. I've just finished watching this stunningly beatiful and interesting program presented by Dr Maggie Adering-Pocock. It was also very inspiring to hear a woman perspective about the role the Moon has on our planet, as well as the benefits of going back to the Moon. I agree with Dr Adering-Pocock with the fact that's it's been a mistake to have abandoned the idea of returning to the Moon. I don't see why we are spending a lot of resources on Mars when we could first develop Moon bases with solar power plants to provide the entire energy requirement on Earth, hence saving us resources down here. Then, we can explore Mars. But the Moon ought to come first. Left-click here--->BBC iPlayer - Do We Really Need the Moon? Enjoy the program and bravo! to Dr Maggie Adering-Pocock
  13. ...don't know I'll take note of above, search & ponder... Cheers!
  14. ... just wandering... is anyone using a digital camcorder for spectral analysis? The reason I'm asking is because I've been thinking of getting a digital camcorder (under £200 range) for music stuff I do, and if I could use the same camcorder for spectroscopy then I won't need extra equipment apart from the lens and some software). ... any thoughts..... P.S. Since I'll be going to Astrofest, I'm getting as much info as possible before I dig a hole in the credit card.... or should I leave it home?
